Cherie Burbach has been an artist and writer since she was a child. Words and images have always been linked for her when it comes to expression and creativity.
She paints with vibrant colors that offer a positive, hopeful message. She has been influenced by a variety of artists, but her favorites are the emotive works of Vincent Van Gogh and the mother and child paintings of Mary Cassatt.
Cherie uses special papers and ephemera along with acrylic paints, oil sticks, pastels, and ink. Very often words combine with the art in some way, either from Bible verses, a thought or emotion, or lines from her original poetry. In everything she paints, her main objective is to create a world outside of this one, where there is only hope and possibility.
