Chery Schlenker
Drawing on her past experiences including serving in the Peace Corps, camping, traveling, as well as living in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, Cheryl tries to express unusual views of everyday subject matter. It excites her to intermix different media and see the charming ways they enhance each other. She has always loved painting and has a B.S. in Design, as well as a master’s degree in special education which has made Cheryl an empathetic learner.  Expressing the joy that exists around us even during such turbulent times is something for which she continues to strive. Cheryl has been honored to accept local, national, and international awards for her works.

Mick McAndrews
Mick's award-winning paintings strive to capture the mood and atmosphere of a subject combining the magic of watercolor with reverence for composition and design to create works of sophisticated simplicity. He enjoys painting outside where he can take advantage of surroundings, natural light, and the sights and sounds that influence each painter's creative nature. Outside in nature’s studio, he must capture the moment because light and its effect, reflection, and cast shadow, change continuously. Mick believes that with watercolor there is a partnership between the artist and medium to balance the knowledge, technique, and skill of the painter while leaving room for the magic that makes watercolor so distinctive.

Robert Vail
Inspired by nature and challenged by the effects achieved through various media, Robert Vail has focused his artistic journey on the plant and animal kingdom through his expressions of feeling, reality, and composition. Throughout his career as a commercial artist, art director, and graphics production, his lasting goal is to communicate the importance of our surroundings while interpreting the beauty and respect it greatly deserves.
