About the Presenter


Cheryl Frances Cameron, of  Cygnet Silks, is a self-taught silk painter, using the silk painting serti technique (serti means fence, referring to the resist used to draw the outlines). She takes her inspiration from dance and the fluid organic shapes in nature, especially the forests of the Pacific Northwest. Born in Mississippi and raised in the Midwest, she fell in love with silk painting in 2009 and has been in Oregon, painting full time since 2011. She shows her work at art shows around the Northwest and works from her studio at Sequoia Gallery in Hillsboro.
