Cherie Taylor is a fine artist specializing in ink and watercolor drawings. Her work is varied, but usually draws from themes in nature. Her interest in the arts started from a young age, inspired by many talented family members! Growing up the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, she was influenced by the nature and wildlife around her. She continued to develop her skills as an artist throughout her childhood by drawing what she saw while enjoying the great outdoors.

She continued her formal education in college, graduating from Virginia Tech in 2008 with a Bachelors of Fine Art in Studio Art. She has worked in the arts industry in various capacities over the years including as a 3D animation artist, photographer, and videographer but switched gears in 2016 to pursue her dream of being a full-time studio artist.

Cherie currently lives in Sterling, Virginia with her husband, Andrew. When not making artsy things, she can usually be found wandering around outside, camping, hiking, or off-roading in their lifted Xterra. She also loves cooking, listening to rock/metal music, singing along to Broadway musicals, and reading all things nerdy.
