Cheryl Huneke’s Art
Cheryl Huneke was born, raised, married and continues to live on Long Island with her husband. She also shares her life with her children, their spouses, and her grandchildren who also live on Long Island.
Cheryl comes from a family who all dabbled in the Arts, from painting, designing, building, gardening, music, and sewing, to name a few.
She loves reading books of all types, writing poetry, and short stories, and had one of her poems published for the first time in the Bards Annual publication in 2018. This group is a Long Island Chapter of the Poetry Society.
Cheryl’s Art experience is mostly self- taught, High School was her only formal art training, where she was accepted into the Art Honors Program and upon graduation in a class of over 600 received one of only two Art Scholarship Awards given out that year.
Her love of Art of all forms and medias has kept her continuously experimenting and trying out various art medias throughout her life.
She does many Art forms including: photography, sewing, crafts, and her most recent works in progress of artwork include pencil drawings, pencil with colored pencil drawings, watercolor paintings, and pen and ink drawings.
Inspiration for her work comes from family, friends, nature, pop-culture, and the Long Island environment with all of its beaches, lighthouses, and quaint and unique towns all over the Island. Long Island is an amazing place to live, work and create artwork of all kinds and many forms.
