Cheryl St. John

Cheryl paints primarily in the plein-air-tradition. She is a fourth-generation Colorado native, with a great appreciation of nature and the environment and the preservation of both. Cheryl was introduced at an early age to the beauty of the Colorado mountains and developed her own love for the landscape that influences her artwork today.

She paints mainly with oil but also loves to work with watercolor. Each medium has its own characteristics, which when using clean vivid colors and as few brush strokes as possible makes for a loose impressionistic finished work of art. She says, “I want the viewer to be able to feel what I felt when painting the piece: feel the warm sun, or the cool breeze, or whatever else is going on nearby and therefore capture the essence of the scene for themselves.”

Cheryl’s paintings have been presented in prestigious national shows such as The American Impressionist Society, Oil Painters of America, Gilcrease Museum, Customs House Museum, Windows to the Divine and the Governor’s Invitational to name a few. Cheryl studied fine art and design at The Rocky Mountain College of Art and at the Colorado Institute of Art. She has studied with well-known artists Scott Christensen, Kim English, Quang Ho, Ken Bachaus and Michael Workman.

She is a member of Oil Painters of America and The Art Students League of Denver. She also is a signature member and vice president of the American Impressionist Society and a signature member of Plein Air Artists of Colorado.

Cheryl has won numerous awards and is in corporate and private collections around the world.
