Loving Lookin’ Good, collage and oil, 13.5×13.5
An artist, collector, student of art history, avid visitor of art museums and galleries, Cheryl Seaver is retired and lives in Essex with her husband. She has been drawing and painting for fifteen years beginning with undergraduate courses at Lyme Academy. Since then, she has continued to explore methods & materials, adding to her toolbox through classes & workshops, most recently Zoom classes from Woodstock School of Art and The Art Digger’s Lab.
Her paintings are about stories. Objects like books and teacups that awaken the artist’s memories, or catch her eye, are painted from life, and create a moment of connection between viewer and artist about pleasures inextricably linked to the objects, past and present. These objects can be larger than life and tend to be whimsically representational.
Her paintings have been shown numerous times in galleries, juried shows, and local museums along the Shoreline. They are in collections from Old Saybrook CT and Binghamton NY to Hawaii, Nova Scotia, and Ontario.
