A painting by Cheryl O’Byrne

Cheryl O’Byrne

Contemporary, mixed media, shape, and colour based with multiple textures and collage.

I like to paint an image that is closest to how a subject or place makes me “feel,” rather than relying on how it appears through the mind’s eye. For example, my version of Banff Avenue has recognizable landmarks, however the colours and some details have been altered to create an atmosphere that represents the warm and inviting “feeling” of Banff on a summer’s day, rather than simply transferring onto canvas how it looks in exact detail.
