Cherree Mallette was raised in a small northeastern town surrounded by music and the arts. She began to play guitar, sing, dance and draw at an early age. Over time, she drew her inspiration from her real-world experiences and transferred them into her artwork.
Cherree studied at the university of Pittsburgh and the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and received a B. A. in Drawing and Painting and an Associates Degree in Visual Communications.
She is now using her fine art talents to express herself through the technique of dry brush. Detail and realism, achieved by Cherree in her art is comparable to that of a photograph and a two dimensional object. The dry brush medium, with it’s subtle contrasts, focuses on the qualities of light and its effect it has. Cherree is fascinated by transforming something commonplace into the extraordinary,through inner expression and exaggerated interpretation of details. Lovers of art will sense her passionate feeling and the commitment in her work.
Currently residing in Florida, she has been a full-time artist for the past fifteen years.
Recently, Cherree has added another dimension to her art by creating an original CD to complement her painting. “Projecting – a musical composition of an artists portfolio” was created to enhance the experience of her series “Spearmint Blue Walls”.
“I create from my heart, producing works of art to touch, move and inspire the viewer.”
