My inspiration is the natural world. I love watching water, how it makes impressions in sand, how weeds work their way around and through rocks, and how flowers appear in the least expected places. I love seeing the sheen of water and the mica in rocks, seeing reflections in puddles, how rain sparkles on leaves after the morning dew. I strive to have these moments depicted in my work.

I use plate shards, stained glass, stones, slate, moss, and other natural and upcycled materials to create mixed media mosaic art to form succulent flowers, plants, and forest floor landscapes in both representative and abstract forms.

Initially educated and employed as an occupational therapist with a lifelong passion for art, in 2010 I opened Cheryl Cohen Mosaics Art Center, the fulfillment of a lifelong dream to teach art classes in my own studio. Over the years, my studio grew to 2000 students per year, with tens of thousands of items in inventory. I find joy in gathering materials (at antique stores, yard sales, on the beach and in the forest), creating art, and encouraging my students to grow and learn.
