Demo Artists this month! Cheryl Renee
Long: Watercolor !
Our February 20th demonstrator will be Kent
artist, Cheryl Renee Long, watercolorist. “An artist since the age
of 3, Long first began with a tube of limited edition lipstick, using it
to draw an entire farm scene on the sheet in her crib while she was
recovering from rheumatic fever.” By age 12 she was a serious

Like many of us, Cheryl moved away from art, in her
case for 18 years, when she married, had a child, became a single parent
and had a stressful job. After being diagnosed with breast cancer,
she reevaluated her priorities, left her job and began painting again.
Now cancer free, she knows that people can benefit from reclaiming their
creativity and becoming involved in art.
Cheryl’s subjects are
mainly landscapes, birds and flowers. She teaches at Daniel Smith
in Seattle and at the Maple Valley Creative Arts Center. Teaching
the basics, she tries to get her students enthusiastic about color and
how it is so fun and amazing.
