Cheryl Martin received her BA IN Art from Nebraska Wesleyan University. Born in Rochester, Minnesota, she moved to Arizona in 1989. She continues to live in Arizona where the landscape, the rugged beauty of the desert and the rich abundance of other natural sources provide inspiration for many of her paintings.
As a child, Cheryl spent hours exploring and drawing the world around her. It seemed natural to her to continue in an artistic direction. After college, Cheryl went into the graphic design field. A love of “design” in art is the influence of her graphic design background.
Cheryl’s inspiration comes from life around her. Travel, unquestionably, broadens her horizon and serves as a source of inspiration for her.
