My name is Cherie Wilson and I am an artist, an instructor, and encourager.
Abstract painting allows me the time and space to share and respond to my daily observations and life circumstances. Here, an internal dialogue emerges, my soul shifts and something inside of me feels untangled on the canvas. These deep and humbling observations full of twists and turns require vulnerability, honesty, integrity and above all perseverance to trust in the process.
Encouraging others to explore Art and navigate the canvas, is yet another form of compassionate expression in my teaching practice with women all ages. Previously teaching in several venues, and in my own downtown teaching studio, my teaching is now unfolding into new opportunities , including assisting at Atlantic Center for the Arts in 2018 and an exciting online class to be announced early in 2018.
Current public works include: Indiana University Hospice House of Bloomington. 4 ft X 4 ft Blue Waterfall, Textured Acrylic on Canvas.
I am a a wife to Mike and mother to four lovely and capable young women and their fine fellas. I was made a Grandma to the cutest little boy AND the cutest little girl on the planet in 2016. I am also Mom to our fuzzy and loyal sidekick, Elly Mae. Who likes to hang out in my home studio when she is not busy riding in the car with me or chasing birds.
