On the Road with Mike
My name is Cheryl T. Bosch, but I sign my artwork as ceebs. It is a nickname
lovingly given to me by my sister, over 30 years ago. I like signing my work
with an unobtrusive, non-gendered, one word name. After all, the work is
not about me, but about itself - about its evolved state.
When I start a piece of work in whatever media I start for several reasons -
the subject may touch me, the colors might inspire me, or I may simply find
it challenging. My professors over the years have told me that the content of
the art is the most important aspect. In this I must declare my outright
rebellion. Perhaps it is a sign that I have a long way to go as an artist, but
my motivating force in my art is in the process. I am not trying to impress an
ideal on my viewer. I do not have political statements. I simply want or
need to experience the artistic process, whether it is in the soft, silky,
strokes of a pastel or the delicate whisper of graphite on paper. The act of
drawing or painting has the ability to consume me - mind and soul. The
exploration of beauty is limitless.
I will sometimes accept commissions.
