CHERI A. COPLEY
I have always loved writing, drawing and painting, just for fun or as a gift for a friend or loved one. "The Daisy" was originally handwritten with simple pastel illustrations and was a gift to my mother. In 2012 and 2013, I re-did the illustrations using pen and watercolor and this story about hope was published.
"TOMMY" was published in 2015, "The Orb" in 2016 and "The Average Star" in 2018. The illustrations were completed using digital media.
Over the last few years I have been commissioned to do a number of works. One of my angels, "Peace" adorned a card that raised money for Le Jardin de los Ninos in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
The pet portraits began when a dear friend lost a beloved pet. My pet portraits are acrylic with some mixed media.
All of my art comes from my heart and with God's grace and guidance.
