My name is Cheryl Hart. I've been painting professionally since 2005. Animals, people, landscapes, farms, and a still life of fruit and found objects, are where I find most of my inspiration. Painting from life is something I make a point of doing regularly to keep my works from photographs strong. When working from a photo, It's not uncommon to find me painting the piece upside down. Mentally, it frees me from the subject matter and allows me to focus on the elements making up the image.
As a Christian, my main goal as an artist is to glorify God with talent He has given me. Painting scripture is ultimately my favorite and most satisfying form of artistic expression. It allows me to meditate on Gods holy words through the painting process, providing peace in my heart. Subsequently, bringing the peace and blessing to others as they adorn their walls with a scripture visual. " So shall my word go forth out of my mouth: it shall not return void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Isaiah 55:11
“The true work of art is but a shadow of divine perfection.”
My work has been exhibited at local juried art shows such as Historic Yellow Springs, Birdsboro Community, Audubon, Studio B, Art Fusion, and Pottstown Area Artist Guilds Art on the Hill. I have also been awarded the Peoples Choice Award at Studio B in Boyertown, Pennsylvania.
