I work with individuals, collectors, corporate accounts and galleries to create custom art work in designer color  and style. 

Caliente: 48”x 36”  

Working with Home Owners, Collectors and Designers to create a statement in a room. 

Since designers are acting on behalf of their customers, they search for particular pieces that are a fit for the project and often need something special that is custom created. Cheryl Johnson will create works specific to your needs.

“I have to change to stay the same.”

— Willem De Kooning

“My philosophy is a very simple one: I believe in creativity, imagination and self expression. I am a painter. I think art can have something important to say about the human condition. At its best, and in any era, great painting is exciting. It can take us somewhere we remember or haven’t been before, provoking us into new areas of thought and feeling."

I aspire to create art that is beautiful, exquisitely crafted, and that force us to change how we experience the spaces we share with the art.

Cheryl Johnson's artwork is inspired not just by her deep and fundamental sense of connection with the natural world but also by her need to represent her own internal states of being. 


This Charlotte/Kauai-based artist creates custom powerful paintings that convey strength, vulnerability and an appreciation for beauty. 

 All of Ms. Johnson’s intuitive and beautiful works are originals including numerous series of mixed media on paper and large oils on canvas. The focus of her work is to create a strong visual continuity throughout. Cheryl has the ability to convey her inner life into her art and find pure joy in the colors of this magical world and is free to follow her interior muse in any way she wishes..
