Cherie Grist is a contemporary Abstract Expressionist Artist exploring her place in the world through multicoloured, geometric, abstract expressionist strokes. Each canvas is a moment in time documenting her ever-changing world, observing, growing and learning with every situation life presents. She sees all her paintings as self-portraits and her process is automatic from the paint used to the method in which she applies her marks.
Cherie has been shortlisted for the John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize, the Cass Art Prize and The National Open Art Prize. She studied Fashion Styling and photography at the University of Arts London. In 2009 Cherie returned to her home town to be part of the Liverpool art scene and is a full- time artist and co-founder of 104 Duke Street Studios – an artist studio gallery space in Liverpool city centre. Her work is in public and private collections and has been exhibited throughout the UK.
