Cheri Christensen was born in Enumclaw, Washington, a small rural town of horse, dairy, and cattle ranches at the foot of Mount Rainier. She attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and graduated with a B.A. from the University of Washington. Cheri studied oil painting and drawing intensely for three years with Ron Lukas, a protege of Sergei Bongart, who taught in the tradition of the Russian Impressionists. Cheri concentrates on seeing and conveying the effects of color and light on form.
“I am inspired by the simple everyday interaction of the animals in their environment: the way the light dances across the form, the harmony of color relationships, and the shapes of light and shadow. I prefer early-morning or late-afternoon settings, with extreme backlighting. My focus is on the farm animals, their character, and the use of color, light, and texture to convey a mood.”
