More of Cheryl Kuhn's Art



Cheryl Kuhn, a very sweet person and extremely talented artist is one whose works I collect and have shown on this blog in the past.....Her use of found materials, bits and pieces of poetry and vintage photographs to create these one of a kind amazing assemblages is both a marvel and an inspiration to me....



These two pieces we keep in the lake house and although the one above may have been shown previously....I was able to get some better photographs and wanted to share the details with you....



I recently received an email from a lovely lady named Traude in Vienna who thanked me for introducing her to Cheryl's work.....



Cheryl's work has also inspired Traude to do some creating of her own....I know that Cheryl would just love knowing that!



When I purchased this wonderful piece from Cheryl several years ago....it was at an Earth Angel's event in Warwick, NY....At the time Cheryl told me it was one of her favorites.... and the boat motif fit right in with our lake house...and of course....the poem spoke to me...
You can look at more of Cheryl's amazing assemblages at the Earth Angel's website and you can check out Cheryl's blog here....
Enjoy!

Just stopped over to check her out again but need to go back and see Earth Angels site. I don't remember seeing these pieces. I love them both but the first one with the nature theme is toooo wonderful.

Hi Laura. I love this artwork!! I do sometimes get Romantic Homes magazine in Australia and have seen her work there. She is truly inspiring! I love so much about her technique and of course am always a sucker for newsprint in art! Thanks for coming over my way again.. it is always a pleasure to have visitors. Julie

Hello dear Laura,

thank you so much for your “post of the day”! It was Jade who told me: Take a look to Lauras blog – and I really was thrilled by your wonderful Cheryl-Kuhn-Assemblages! She is great (and you are, too!) Oh and thank your for mentioning me – and mentioning me as a “lovely lady” ;-) !

Hope you got my mail from 16th with the missing text and some photos!
Take care,
Traude

Your friend is very talented! She makes so nice artworks...very nice and you're lucky to collect some of them!
Wish you a nice evening!
Big hugs
