Her paintings and landscape abstracts evoke a sense of wonder, guiding the eye through geometrically complex landscapes teeming with rich detail.

“I feel a personal connection to the work in front of me and I can look back at what I’ve accomplished while planning my next step for tomorrow.  It’s a clear path that is soothing and I hope my paintings project my celebration of life as I pursue my passion and have more joy every day.” – Cheryl Johnson

"Make it Beautiful and Build it to LastI"

I am a mixed media artist with my home and studio in Charlotte, NC. My studio is filled with wood, wonder, and the constant presence of my service dogs and interesting natural objects. I have always felt that the most amazing artworks, furniture, forms, structure, color, and textures are found within nature and that exposure to these elements has been my inspiration. My work expresses the evolution of my life experiences. In practicing architecture for 30 years, I have explored the rather complex processes of manipulating space, form, texture, material, and color to create an emotional response from the viewers interacting with a space. My artwork is a continuation of that process, at a more expressive and intimate scale. Connecting with you, the viewer, at both intellectual and emotional levels, remains the ultimate goal.The abstract paintings of Jim Wildman are steeped in contemplation. The North Carolina artist creates works as part of a series, often inspired by the environment and architecture. Wildman uses Conté crayons, charcoal, and washes of oil and acrylic paint to create his canvases which are layered with complexity.

"Artists like myself, use texture to add depth, interest, or balance to different areas of our paintings or artwork. Often texture is used to give the illusion of depth. I find to make a piece seem more realistic — the more detail I put into the work with the use of glazes or texture (such as the texture of trees, skin, etc.), I find the more realistic a work of art can look." Jim Wildman
