Cheryl Bower (www.artprojectCanada.com)
Cheryl has been a self-taught mosaic artist since 1998. She began by using glass on glass and created large installation pieces on old window frames. These were sold at various art shows in Toronto; the Distillery District, Queen West Art Crawl and Nathan Phillip Square Art Exhibition to name a few.
Recently, Cheryl has become captivated by using unusual material in her mosaics plus her current favourite muses, smalti, marble and stone. Found rusty metal, crumbling brick, reclaimed wood, broken vintage glass, precious and semi-precious natural rock, are all finding a home in some of her recent work. She is inspired by nature and animals.
Cheryl is proud to teach mosaic art at various schools in Toronto as well as volunteering at ArtHeart.
