Artist of the Moment…. Cherry Hood…

 

 

this artist was born in Australia in 1960 and mainly does portraits, painting them larger than life and with much emotion.  She works in a variety of media including watercolour and oils. The artist won the Archibald Art Prize in 2002 for a painting of a piano player. She painted him topless for a stark contrast to his usual appearance in a suit and tie.

The artist also illustrated a book in 2005.

The artist now resides in Sydney, Australia.
