Cheryl Anne Grace

Artist + Cheryl Anne Grace

Moving to New Orleans on my own in 2009 finally gave me the time and space I needed to paint endlessly. I never run out of inspiration in this vibrant and magical city that enraptures me with its deep, rich history, cherished architecture, music that begs you to stop and listen, colorful neighborhoods, mystery, and eccentric characters.  I paint New Orleans, points beyond, and imaginary places.  As a child growing up mostly alone,  my imagination created the wonderful solitary world in which I lived. That gift has carried through to my adult life and fed my need to create. I am a self-taught artist, and I spend as much time researching and studying art as I do painting it. 

My work is done in the studio, from photos I constantly take while making my way around town, preferring the path less traveled, and from compositions that I create in my imagination. The iconic musicians and culture bearers paintings are created from extensive research and by referencing as many as 20 images to portray each one uniquely. My work is in private collections across the country and internationally as well as public and corporate collections.  I was selected for the 2017 Bywater Biennial exhibition curated by Don Marshall, a Prospect 4 Satellite exhibit, as well as a Prospect 4 Satellite exhibit curated by Where Y'art.  My work has also been selected and shown by the New Orleans Arts Council and featured on the cover and inside front page of the 2018 April quarterly issue of "The Iron Lattice," an arts and culture magazine. I regularly exhibit as a featured or solo artist  in galleries in the Arts District of New Orleans and the French Quarter.  I also show my work in exhibits curated by Where Y'art for public spaces and local galleries. I was accepted as a JazzFest artist  in 2018, 2019, and the cancelled JazzFests of 2020 & 2021.

I paint art for people with soul, not to match your sofa!!
