About the Artist

Figure Studies







Cheri HaŁg grew up in La Crosse, Wisconsin and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 1979. In 1984, she graduated from the University of San Francisco School of Law and began her legal career. Feeling the need to pursue a more creative life, she studied drawing and color. Eventually, she moved back to the Midwest in 1994 and pursued the study of the human figure and then turned her attention to portraits. She has studied oil portrait painting under world renowned portrait artist, Margaret Baumgaertner since 2010.

Her favorite subjects are pets and families. Works are done in pastel, charcoal, ink, acrylic and oil.

Recently she has turned her attention to making playful
portraits of vegetables, pets, secret agents and super heroes.

"My art is about joy and gratitude."

BTW, Cheri's last name is pronounced like "how" with a "G" at the end.
It's a Norwegian word meaning "hill."
