About Cheryl Stratmann Bubier







Cheryl Stratmann Bubier found her affinity for the arts while in high school, studying realistic painting in private studies with David Zuccarini. She earned her B.F.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University’s renowned art program, concentrating in film and video. Upon graduation, she moved to Los Angeles and, in addition to painting, she worked in film and video production, primarily in art direction and production design, where she worked on such films as “Twins,” Michael Jackson’s “Moonwalker” and “Point Break.” She also exhibited and sold her paintings in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica. She continued her studies in Los Angeles at the Otis School of Fine Arts under Franklin Liegel. While in Los Angeles, she also taught art at the WestSide Arts Center and received a grant to teach art at an inner-city elementary school.

Cheryl moved to New York and attended the prestigious Pratt Institute, earning her M.F.A. in 1992. As a working artist and mother of three since her graduation from Pratt, Cheryl has studied under Pat Steir at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, and has had her paintings exhibited in shows juried by Stephen Bennett Phillips, Curator of the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C, and Dr. Gary Vikan, Director of the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore. Her paintings have been exhibited and sold in galleries throughout the East Coast.

Cheryl has recently turned her artistic attention to pottery, specifically hand-built plates and bowls. Each unique piece is fired and glazed in the kiln in her studio in the beautiful horse country of northern Maryland. She has also focused her artistic energies outside of her own work, as a founding Board member of the Northern Baltimore County Art Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising arts awareness and scholarship money for high school students interested in studying the arts in college.
