The daughter of a draftsman father and an artist/oil painter mother, our friend Cheryl has art in her blood. Her mother taught her to crochet at age 6, and she taught herself to sew her own clothes at age 13. She grew up in a beach town, and much of that scenery would become inspiration for her artwork.
Her love for anything creative grew over the years. She did macrame, china painting, pottery, seashell mirrors, and stained glass boxes with seashell lids. In the early 80s, she learned to make stained glass windows in a friend’s garage, and when she built her house, she made 23 stained glass windows for it.
She has loved and collected antiques for many years. Every time she finds a great old bottle, she feels it’s like a work of art. Cheryl departed from her love of art to support her children in the corporate world, but it has been her dream to do something creative again. These bottles are the result of that dream.
