My painting depicts angels, unicorns and spirit guides. I explore the dance and how we navigate through this life. Through the guidance of the angels and spirit guides I have layered reiki into my artwork and have come to see art as a healing tool for both the painter and the viewer. I paint intuitively and my artwork channels an energy and healing that I hope will inspire.
Biography: Cheryle Bannon I was born in Redcliffs, Mildura, in the state of Victoria, Australia in 1962. I have worked as an artist since I could hold a pencil. My mother and my great grandfather were also artists. It has always been my passion and integral to my ability to balance my life and work as I am also secondary art teacher and a mother of two yound children. My studio is situated in my house and the children come and go as they please and I gladly share my work space with them. I found that the only way to create balance in my life was to incorporate my art into the ordinary necessities of life.
