Cheryl Holz

Cheryl received a Master of Fine Arts, and a 
Bachelor of Science in Art Education (Cum Laude, Type 10 Certification) from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, Illinois.   She also studied drawing and painting at California State University in  Northridge, California.

"As a child, I roamed the woods and fields collecting moss, bugs, leaves, and to my mother's chagrin, snakes and salamanders. I still collect all kinds of things, including butterfly wings, overdue notices, leaves, labels, eggshells, stamps, and kelp. These collections have found their place in my work.

That early fascination with nature has led me to investigate natural forms as well as human designs and marks; the connections between nature's patterns and those in our own lives continue to fascinate me and invigorate my art.

As Diane Ackerman observes in the forward to The Design of Nature, 'We confront patterns in our daily events, actions and objects. Our conversations meander like rivers.  Junk-mail dunes on cluttered desks.  Families branch.  Music curves, spirals and flows.'"

- Cheryl Holz
