Cheryl Kelley is an artist who was classically trained in oil paint and has taken her passion and love of cars, muscle cars, and put her own stamp on the subject matter. She started painting at the age of ten and grew up in the formative 60s. She often paints on aluminum that plays well to the reflections on the surfaces of automobiles allowing the viewer to go deeper and to see something more in the form. The quality and mystery of these reflections take the viewer out of the mundane and in to a dream world. The nostalgia of the American dream along with cars makes her art unique and Cheryl adds her own feminine stamp on the subject matter taking the beauty of the object and going beyond the surface.
