CHERYL CHRISTIANSEN

California artist, Cheryl Christiansen, is a woman of talent… of beauty… and amazing versatility.

She is most noted for her serene landscapes and colorful garden scenes. Painted with a contemporary flare, they were inspired by her admiration of Monet and the Impressionists. Her early watercolor florals resemble the primitive still-life paintings by Sarah Phine, the renowned artist of the post-impressionist period, while her more recent oversized florals are a sensual, microscopic study of the intimate beauty of flowers.

Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Ms. Christiansen is a writer, producer, actress, dancer and singer-songwriter who has appeared on many TV shows, in feature films and on stage, and whose songs have been recorded by major recording artists. She began painting in the late 1970’s, when she met artist and famous film director, Jean Negulesco, who was sketching his infamous line drawings of the people and happenings around him. His technique attracted her, and he became her mentor. Presenting her with her first camera, guiding her and encouraging her to develop all of her many talents, he unlocked the door to a world of art, out of which has flowed her extensive creativity. Under his tutelage, she began her painting career with pen and ink drawings splashed with gouche. His influence, and the impact their relationship had in her life, is evident in her exotic body of work. She received her formal training at Otis/Parsons Institute.

Ms. Christiansen works in all media, but prefers oil. The prismatic colors closely represent to her the energy vortexes of the human body, allowing her to explore and express the world of light. Involved for many years in the healing arts, Ms. Christiansen experiences the process of creating a painting as a road map for the evolvement of the soul – the end result revealing the journey of the spirit toward forgiveness, love, healing and enlightenment. Her work appears in major private and corporate collections internationally.
