Cheryl Kennedy

Born in Trinidad and Tobago; showed great aptitude for drawing at an early age of 5 years old. Discovering this talent, I entered my first Caribbean National Art Competition and received honorable mention for my piece entitled "Boca Reef" done in oils.

Inspired by my dad, acclaimed Carribean artist, I received formal training in high school and later on in advanced studies, specializing in a multitude of mediums ranging from pencil, acrylics, oils and watercolors to name a few. Received National Awards (Carribean) for a piece entitled "Folklore" - all pieces were sold and now proudly displayed by multiple private art collectors.

When asked, what I would like to convey through my work...

..."I want those viewing my work to be stirred by the emotion that lies deep within all of us. To be open to other realities and come away with an inspired appreciation to the subject matter they are viewing."

Though most of my work has been enjoyed by the Caribbean, I am presently working in the U.S. where I am able to share my work with the rest of the world.
