Cheryl Anne Grace

Artist + Cheryl Anne Grace

I am a self taught painter,  primarily influenced by my Southern roots and, in particular, my past 13 years in the Gulf South. I am drawn to the landscapes, architecture and people that make up the rich and diverse culture of the region, particularly Louisiana.  I portray that influence in my work using both real and symbolic elements in my storytelling style that merges past with present. Magical realism, religious imagery and iconography are key elements in most of my work.

The symbolism I incorporate is of things I consider sacred, sentimental, cherished, and often personal, interwoven with broader themes. I grew up very much alone, an only child, with a mother who was mostly absent, physically and emotionally. My imagination was an integral part of my childhood and created the wonderful solitary world in which I lived.

My work is done in the studio, using & combining photographs I take constantly, preferring the path less traveled, and from compositions that I create in my imagination.  My collection of  iconic musicians and culture bearers paintings are created from extensive research and by using as many as 20 images to uniquely portray each one. My work is in private collections nationally & internationally, public & corporate collections, and used in a variety of film productions.  I was selected for two Prospect 4 Satellite Exhibitions in 2017, and my work has been selected and shown by the New Orleans Arts Council, featured in Country Roads Magazine, New Orleans Canvas Magazine, and the cover & artist feature of Iron Lattice Magazine. I have regularly exhibited in shows and galleries in New Orleans  & Mississippi for the past 10 years and have been selected as a JazzFest artist since 2018. My work was most recently part of the “Remember Earth?” exhibit at the New Orleans Contemporary Art Center.

I do not create art to match the sofa.  My intention is that  you can connect through my paintings to experience joy, amusement, and sentimentality.

Commissions welcome! Studio visits welcome!

I am a New Orleans artist living and working in the Uptown area.
