Cheryl Radford has lived and worked in London for 30 years. A strong left brain and right brain thinker, Radford taps into both her creative and analytical skills to capture her subjects, from streetscapes and architecture to figure drawing and golf art.
"Life is a work in progress and creating art is an important part of my life," says Radford. "I draw inspiration from all that life has to offer, from people, pets, work, and the seemingly ordinary surroundings right here in London, to golfing at pristine golf courses. In the words of George Bernard Shaw 'Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.' For me one of the real joys is the simple act of drawing."
"In August of 2007, I spent two weeks in a converted medieval monastery in Limoux, in the picturesque Lanquedoc area of Southern France. I loved the medieval towns and hilltop villages with their rick history and amazing architecture. When I returned home, I began to take more notice of the wonderful architecture right in southwestern Ontario. Its funny how I had to go half way around the world to really appreciate and notice the architecture right in front of me. If you are downtown London, just look up and you will see all the great architectural detail on the old buildings. "
