About Cheryl Peddie

CPeddie-ElbowValley-cropI work as a full-time artist and art instructor in Calgary, Alberta. I enjoy creating art that depicts natural settings of the prairies, lake country, and the foothills. I also love depicting urban street scenes, interiors, still life and animals.

I paint to know and understand myself better, and to make meaning of the world around me. Painting keeps me in touch with my confidence, self-worth, and purpose. In 2014, I began plein air painting. It has opened me to a new way of seeing and living as an artist. Through plein air, I feel like I actually get to become the light, nature and life that I strive to capture in my art. It is transformative and captivating. 

As an art teacher, I believe that the ability to be artistic is not solely innate. It can also be learned and developed. Each person’s art is an expression of their unique ‘voice’ – their thoughts, emotions and beliefs. My goal is to help my students find, develop and grow confidence in the creative expression of this voice.

When I’m not in my art studio, I love to pursue creative pastimes. I enjoy exploring both Alberta and Saskatchewan – camping, and taking photos. I love to read, listen to music, attend live theatre, and spend time with my husband Steve, and our dogs.

I hope you enjoy my work.
