About Cheryl Peddie

I work as a full-time artist in Calgary, Alberta. I enjoy creating art that depicts natural settings of the prairies, lake country and the coast. Living in the city, however, I also love depicting urban spaces – from busy street scenes, to interiors and still life. I enjoy painting and writing about art and creativity because I want to share a few key ideas with others:

First, I believe that the ability to be creative is not solely innate. It can also be learned and developed. We all have the gifts of a unique point of view, thoughts, emotions and beliefs. These gifts are what makes each person’s art so special.

Second, I believe that our life experiences not only expand our capacity for creativity, but that creativity expands our capacity for life experiences. Whether we express ourselves through paint, yarn, or crayons and glue sticks, creativity helps us find our self-worth, self-acceptance & compassion. It helps us feel love and empathy, (both for ourselves and others) and to know that we belong and have a purpose.

This is why I paint – I hope you enjoy my work.
