Mary Ann Cherry

 
Idaho Falls, Idaho

Artist's Statement

Cherry was raised in rural Montana and her folks were big Charlie Russell fans – it helped boost her interest in art at an early age. Her mom gave her a paintbrush and small oil painting set when she was eight, and her father was always sketching buckin' broncos, rattlesnakes and a lot of other non-girly things for her on newsprint from an old pad of paper. From this beginning, her interest in art grew and she majored in art at college.

Now she lives near the Snake River in Idaho, where wildlife and birds are plentiful and are great subject matter. What wildlife and people she paints that aren't local, Cherry and her husband see on photography trips, such as drives over to the Jackson, Wyoming area when mountain sheep are plentiful or the sandhill cranes are migrating through, or to one of the numerous Native American pow-wows throughout the western states. Cherry often joins about four or five photos together to get a composition that pleases the eye.

Her work has won many national awards, and she has been the invited guest of several art museums. Cherry is also a nationally sought-after workshop instructor - one who loves to teach. Her workshop schedule can be found on her website, or inquire about one in your area. The coffee pot is always on in her studio, and visitors are welcome.

In that elusive free time, Cherry is writing a mystery novel and does website and ad design for other artists.

Chief

"Chief"

Pastel on Wallis sanded paper

American Indian dancers are one of my favorite subjects, living as we do so close to the reservation of the Shoshone-Bannock tribe. I have a great respect for the Indians and their culture, as well as an appreciation of the beauty of their dancing and dress.

Dimensions: 16" x 20"

Hey, spots and stripes! Another fun contrast. I love appaloosa horses and this one had a quirky sense of humor.
