Cherry Beresford

I was born in England, grew up in Zimbabwe and have travelled extensively. I have lived in Africa, London, Israel and Minnesota USA.

I worked as a registered Nurse and Midwife and emigrated with my family to Australia in 1982.

In 1993 I joined the Peninsula and McClelland Art Societies and have been painting regularly since. I have had wonderful inspirational Tutors in Watercolours and Acrylics – including Joan Bognuda, Robert Wade, Malcolm Beattie, Alvaro Castignet –and Colin Johnson who taught me how to ‘See’ !

I have entered paintings in many Art Shows and won awards including –

Best Watercolour at Flinders Art Show (my first award 1996) , Best painting of Children at Wangaratta Art Show, Best Watercolour under $500 at Bentleigh OLSH Art Show, Best in Show Peninsula Art Society Spring Art Show, Best Botanical Berwick Artfest, Second prize Seascape Berwick Artfest and also eight Highly Commendeds to date.

I thoroughly enjoy the flexibility of Acrylics at the moment , and I am inspired by a wide range of  subjects.
