Cherie Duty


My art is always an experiment influenced by my fascination with all things natural. Growing up in the beautiful Rocky Mountains has given me ample inspiration and a deep appreciation for nature with which to work. I enjoy the challenge and drama that comes with the change of seasons indicative of mountain living.  Trying to capture a bit of that beauty has been my goal artistically.   Recently, I’ve been intrigued by experimenting in the abstract.  I enjoy the story of abstract art being finished by the viewer.  My desire is to bring some beauty, peace, serenity, and maybe a little bit of whimsy to all.
Cherie Duty lives in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, with her husband, and two boys.  When not taking care of her family, and traveling all over the state for snowboarding and soccer competitions, she enjoys some quiet time working in her studio.
