About Cheryl

I'm a simple girl who was born and raised in a small South Texas town now living in the big city. I never had big goals or dreams. What I wanted most in life was to be in a loving relationship and have a family. I've been blessed with both though they didn't come the way I planned.

I believe in love, the kindness of others and the beauty of art. My strengths are: Adaptability, Empathy, Positivity, Consistency & Developer.

I have a day job that pays me a salary that I help support my family with but my true purpose in life is to be creative. There have been times throughout my life that I have felt so very lost like I was suppose to be doing something very different with my life but didn't have a clue as to what that was. I have given myself permission to not know all the answers and to trust that God has good plans for me. 

In 2014, I spent the year searching for purpose. I pondered a lot of really good ideas but I didn't come to any real decision as to purpose other than I'm an artist. That is who I am. But, one of the best things I found in The Year of Purpose was Chris Guillebeau's book called "The Happiness of Pursuit" and that's when I realized I didn't need purpose (because actually, I already had a lot of purpose), I needed a QUEST. Something to pursue. 

This project is my personal quest to express gratitude and share the art that I'm compelled to make instead of letting it pile up in a drawer. People ask me all the time if I sell my art and I'm happy to sell it (I have an Etsy shop) but I don't enjoy marketing and selling it. I make it because something in me that I cannot describe has to make it and I cannot ignore that pull inside my heart.

52 weeks + 52 pieces of artwork + 52 recipients = Give 52.
