Cheryl Owen was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Santo Tomas with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts, Major in Advertising Arts in 2009.
After graduating, she pursued an advertising career until she left the industry in 2016. Since then, Cheryl has ventured on her own as a full-time visual artist, illustrator, and creative entrepreneur. She has exhibited her works in various galleries and online art auctions in Manila and abroad, and has worked on personal and commercial illustrations. She also has her own small collection of stationery products in Common Room Ph.
Cheryl’s works are watercolor paintings that are inspired by the great outdoors, the Divine Feminine, and the human psyche. She weaves her imagery with a touch of symbolism that speaks and connects to the viewer on an intimate level. Cheryl’s depiction of portraits and bodies intertwined with elements of nature and scenic landscapes explores the relationship of humans and nature in modern times. Through her visuals she suggests that the metaphors of the natural world are teachings that could guide us on our journey back to our personal truth and towards spiritual rebirth.
Cheryl now resides with her husband and four cats in Batangas City. If she is not working in her studio, she could either be seen jogging outside, spending time with the cats, repotting her plants, or camping in the nearest mountain with their friends.
