Cheryl believes that being an artist is a way of life – an attitude. She studied classical ballet as a child and remembers having a vivid imagination and “speaking with spirits” at a young age. However, she did not pursue formal study in art until after her medical studies in China in 1981. She began her training in Australia and then studied at the Corcoran in Washington, D.C. She learned art history as a guide at the Phillips Collection (the U.S.’ first museum of modern art) and the Textile Museum in Washington, D.C.
