Cherie Burbach has been an artist and writer since she was a child. Words and images have always been linked for her when it comes to expression and creativity. She paints with vibrant colors that offer a positive, hopeful message. She has been influenced by a variety of artists, but her favorites are the emotive works of Vincent Van Gogh and the mother and child paintings of Mary Cassatt. Cherie uses special papers and ephemera along with acrylic paints, oil sticks, pastels, and ink. Very often words combine with the art in some way, either from Bible verses, a thought or emotion, or lines from her original poetry.
In addition to art, Cherie is also a writer. She has penned and contributed to articles for NBC/Universal, (NYTimes owned) About.com, GreenCraft (Somerset Studio), Christianity Today, Readers Digest, Family Circle, and more. She is also the author of over a dozen books, the latest of which (entitled Painting the Psalms) combines her love of art and words. For more, visit cherieburbach.com.
