About The Artist
Trained as a textile/surface pattern designer at the prestigious F.I.T. in New York City, Marci Cheary has developed a unique style by combining the techniques of surface design, with elements of classical floral and still life painting. “My work can be appreciated on many different levels. Bold outlines juxtaposed with intricate details mean that my compositions work as well close up as they do from afar” says Marci. Ms. Cheary’s approach is the product of an interesting and varied career. After graduating from FIT, she entered the textile industry and became a successful designer. Wanting to extend herself as an artist, she left textile design to start a couture lingerie line named ‘Jillian Sherry’. These beautiful hand-painted silk pieces received much accolade from the press and celebrity clients alike. In her quest to push her talents in a new direction, Marci began the transition from textiles into fine art. Replicating the gorgeous designs from her lingerie line, she created a series of silk prints that were featured in a number of galleries and home décor boutiques. After taking a brief hiatus to raise her twin girls, Ms. Cheary picked up her brush again. Her new focus has produced surface design inspired art that is graphic and bold, yet also delicate and stunningly detailed.
