Cherie is an artist who loves painting especially Bath as it is a beautiful city where she grew up. It has been a sheer joy to capture the shape and details of it’s elegant buildings and surroundings.

Painting in the medium of acrylic she has tried to capture the honey coloured stone buildings and stylish windows which she hopes will bring it to life for residents and visitors alike.

Cherie wants to evoke happy memories of Bath and it’s wonderful surroundings.


Cherie loved walking the whole of Cornwall South West Coast path and was captivated by its beauty so as an artist she had to paint it.

She has done several commissions of seascapes. This includes a large scale painting of colourful boats at Cadgwith Cove, Cornwall bought by a top class restaurant.  Also she has painted a huge scale turbot fish.

She wanted her paintings to reflect the sheer beauty of the Cornish coast for all to enjoy.


Artsparks brings a series of regular creative workshops to young patients on the Children’s Ward. The workshops led by our Lead Artist, Edwina Bridgeman and Visiting Artist, Charlotte Stowell allow patients to use their imagination and develop their own ideas. The artwork can then be taken home, shown to clinical staff or installed in the public Artsparks gallery in Zone B which reaches an audience of 22,000 people per year.
