Summary

Jane Cheek is a mixed media artist who works in an abstract style, combining acrylic painting and fiber art.  Cheek dry brushes acrylics to achieve a texture that mimics hand woven fabric and adds three-dimensional elements and embroidery her  work, pushing the boundaries of two-dimensional art.  She creates colorful and whimsical art intended to spark joy in the viewer. Cheek is currently working on a series of abstract landscapes with tactile and interactive elements.
