ART FOR INTERIOR DESIGNERS
I have had the pleasure of working with some wonderful home owners, decorators, realtors and interior designers who have used my artworks within their schemes in the USA, Kauai, Canada and UK.
If you are an interior designer looking for the perfect artwork for your client please get in touch.
ORIGINAL ARTWORKS FOR INTERIOR DESIGNERS
I have a selection of contemporary, abstract and impressionistic original artworks for sale in a variety of sizes. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a price list and if you happen to be able to come to Charlotte or to Kauai when I am home there I would love to meet you and book an appointment for you to view available works.
I undertake commissions for extremely large wall art, however, require a 50% deposit. Custom works require special stretchers and canvas.
I would need 18 months minimum to complete a specialty wall mural type new work. A non-refundable 50% deposit is required before any works are undertaken.
I work ‘in the style of’ existing paintings from my collections and within a color scheme but each commission would be a totally unique piece created especially for the client.
Beginning a redecoration project is an exciting, but sometimes challenging experience and knowing where to begin is often the hardest part. I like to suggest looking at paint colors and love the WALL colors from Farrow & Ball who have created a selection of inspirational colour schemes, with key features to consider when decorating with ART in the most important rooms in your home.

“I REALLY HAVE ENJOYED HAVING CHERYL'S PAINTING IN MY HOME. I WAS SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE MET CHERYL AND SEE HER PAINTINGS, WHICH ARE UNIQUE, NOT TO MENTION STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL.
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT HER PAINTINGS ARE THE ATMOSPHERIC, THE TEXTURES, COLOR, AND VITALITY OF HER PAINTINGS. YOUR REALLY NEED TO SEE THEM IN PERSON.
" K. Craver
I BROUGHT CHERYL SOME PAINT CHIPS THAT I WANTED HER TO PUT SOME OF THOSE COLORS IN THE PAINTING AND SHE WAS SPOT ON, AMAZING.
WE TALKED OVER ALL THE COLOR OPTIONS I USED FOR THE WALLS THAT I WANTED TO MATCH. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN AND CREATIVE.

COMMISSION EXAMPLE 2
The unusual prerequisite in creating this piece was to use paint to match colors Greta enjoys and also found in the Kane’s home. Locating color swatches and then mixing paints to emulate the colors chosen was a fun challenge. Artistic license and freedom to play are what make this painting enjoyable for me. I painted it while visiting Oklahoma, the Kane’s home state. I sat out in the sun and just explored emotions and feelings of their friendship. Thank you Greta and Neil for this experience. I look forward to sharing laughter and friendship in your home soon. Salute--Enjoy! Te quiero.

Gozo del vivir - J’oie de vivre - A keen enjoyment of living
The “Raising Kane” abstract impressionist painting was commissioned by two close friends, Greta and Neil Kane. Their joy of life and appreciation and encouragement of my work has bolstered and beckoned me to create with great energy and freedom. Greta and Neil are both colorful individuals in their own right. They have a spirit of Joy of Living--Gozo del vivre or j’oie de vivre and are simply fun friends.
Abstract art uses a visceral and visual language of color, form and line to create a composition that may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. This abstract painting is about friendship and pure emotion, “Joy.”
In general, there are two types of abstract paintings. The first type of abstract painting portrays objects that have been "abstracted" (images taken) from reality or nature.
A second type of abstract painting, sometimes referred to as "pure" abstract art, is even more obtuse. This painting, “Raising Kane,” falls in the second category and is about emotion. Although the idea of abstraction had been around for some time, the Abstract Expressionists went a lot further. Artists like Kandinsky, Mitchell, Pollack, Gorky, Kline, Richter began to emphasize, not only the finished product, but the actual process of painting. They experimented in how they interacted with the paint, the canvas, and their tools; and they paid attention to the physical qualities of the paint itself, its texture, color and shape.
For me, said Cheryl, “This painting has evolved in an exploration of feelings and media. Upon close examination, you will find a variety of mixed media: oil pastel, water-based oil, acrylics, latex, ink and laughter. You will also experience subtle color changes and then explosions of pure color. It is a dance. I enjoyed the process of creating it as much as the pleasure I hope others will feel in viewing the finished piece. I believe that good paintings create feelings like when you hear music, or read poems, stories or books. I believe that paintings invoke feelings in another person.”
How they choose to hang the piece will be fun to discover. Rotate and enjoy! Keep the spirit of play alive. Life is a dance.
