Chérie excels in wildlife, landscapes, portraits and seascapes and is continually commissioned on many different subjects, working in all media.
Her database of clients now stretches worldwide, as well as throughout the UK. She has featured in the National Weekly News, on TV Christchurch, New World Films as well as in the Bournemouth Echo and most recently in 2015 on BBC’s ‘Home Away from Home’ series and 2016 with Louis Theroux.
Completely self-taught as a professional artist, Chérie has had to overcome many hurdles, including severe burns to her hands, cancer, a car accident, bowel operations, kidney stones and kidney removal in order to achieve her lifelong ambition.
She gives demonstrations to Art Societies, runs painting holidays, individual lessons and gives tuition at workshops. She also supports many charities, including WWF and Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF). The limited-edition prints from her portrait of singer-songwriter, James Blunt, have been approved for selling by James Blunt Ltd, supporting MSF.
Chérie holds continual, successful exhibitions in Dorset, and is currently ‘Artist in Residence’ at Place Mill Gallery & Heritage Watermill at Christchurch Quay. She also has exhibitions throughout the UK, and has been offered the opportunity to exhibit in New Zealand as both her international and UK aspirations continue to grow.
