About the Artist

Born and raised in rural New England, Cheryl Wood developed a love of the outdoors in her childhood while exploring in the woods of her hometown. Since then, she has sought out wilderness adventure in places as remote as the Sierra Nevada’s, from high above an alpine lake, and from the island rainforests of Hawaii.

About the Artist

Born and raised in rural New England, Cheryl Wood developed a love of the outdoors in her childhood while exploring in the woods of her hometown. Since then, she has sought out wilderness adventure in places as remote as the Sierra Nevada’s, from high above an alpine lake, and from the island rainforests of Hawaii. She finds treasures of outdoor life in places with stunning scenery that is only accessible by foot or by kayak.

With a camera in hand since age five, Cheryl has always been fascinated by exploring nature from behind the lens. She trained at R.I. School of Photography and began her career assisting alongside scores of successful commercial photographers in Boston. She quickly added graphic design to her creative tool box, and with over two decades of experience, she works as a freelance graphic designer in Sacramento, California.

Known for stylized depictions of landscapes and people, Cheryl is a proven master of capturing unique moments of outdoor enthusiasts in wilderness settings. Many of her adventure photographs are featured on PaddlingCalifornia.com, a premier resource for kayaking and paddling sports in California. Her photos have been showcased on exhibition and published in calendars, brochures, greeting cards, books and in design projects for her clients.

A kayaker, trail runner, and lover of nature, Cheryl hopes to engage the viewer in the experience of her journey through her images. “Nothing nurtures my spirit so much as capturing the awe of God’s creation and sharing it with others”.
