About the Artist

Cherie Smittle enjoys living a life less ordinary.  As an adventurer and self-professed workaholic, when not traveling, she calls the mountains of Colorado home. Finding a calm in the middle of the storm through her Art. 

Her style is realistic, yet playful and detail oriented. Primarily following the Flemish technique, which gives her paintings a unique glow in any light. Her preferred mediums are Acrylic and Oil on Canvas and Wood with the occasional pyrography and digital media mixed in. Lately, she has been appreciating the light effects of metallic paints and finding unique ways of incorporating state icons into a landscape. 

Cherie’s muse is first and foremost her husband. Being an adventurer, she also draws inspiration from the landscapes, adventure sports that she enjoys, famous women she finds alluring/interesting, flora and fauna. She finds that through art she is able to relive her experience while adding her unique perspective.
