About Cheryl Kellar

Cheryl Kellar of Fayetteville, Arkansas, is a watercolor artist painting themes of high fashion. Some of Cheryl’s earliest memories are of creating clothes for her paper dolls from the pictures she found in her mother’s fashion catalogs and sewing patterns. In elementary school she began to draw beautiful women in elaborate costumes. She believes fashion is art and continues to explore ways of expressing the magic and drama of all things fashion in her work.

I began studying art with Jacquelyn Kaucher at the Arkansas Arts Center in 2002. I joined the Mid-Southern Watercolorists soon after my art education began and held the positions of Membership Chair, Special Exhibits Chair, Workshop Chair, and Newsletter Chair in the years that followed. The position of Workshop Chair afforded me the opportunity to seek out a variety of excellent artists/instructors to study with in the workshop setting. Most memorable to me are Anne Abgott, Jane Angelhart, Linda Kemp, Mark Mehaffey, and Judi Coffey.

I paint women of style – unique, real and imagined – who populate my world. I use bold, clean color, and create interesting textures not often found in watercolor paintings. My work is frequently described as contemporary expressionist, hip and edgy, and very vogue.
