I am a multi-disciplinary artist, author and practicing astrologer living in Baltimore, MD. Ever-evolving and open to learning new things, I have been a full time freelancer for over a decade.

For more than 25 years, my promotional, event, and editorial photographs have been published in both mainstream and alternative newspapers and magazines in  North America and Europe. My work also appears in several books on alternative culture, and on numerous fashion and entertainment websites. My short films and music videos have appeared in film festivals, on broadcast television and as content on various websites. My music video for Dreamchild’s “Alone” won the 2020 “Saturday Visiter Award” which was vetted by Poe Baltimore and the Poe Museum in Richmond, VA.

Although I earned my BA in visual arts in 1992 (filmmaking major/art history minor), I did not take painting in school. I began teaching myself to paint  in 2016 and first had a painting included in a gallery show in 2019. I work with both oil and acrylic paint on canvas and you can see both available and sold paintings in the “Paintings” gallery. Please contact me about prices at cheryl @

In January 2020 my first book was published. It is a non-fiction American history biography about my great great uncle, a pioneer who lived off the land in the frozen Far North for for nearly fifty years. Joe Quigley, Alaska Pioneer: Beyond the Gold Rush   is available from McFarland Publishing, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other bookseller sites.

Currently, I write the weekly horoscopes column for The Baltimore Banner. My astrology services are available to private clients as well. For astrology questions, please email me at Cheryl @

I am the creator of the “Magical Realism Tarot” project, which combines my art photography with my writing, and interest in the metaphysical. It became a published 78 card tarot deck in 2015.

All of my work is handled on a case by case basis, tailored the specifications of the assignment. I am located in Baltimore, MD, but am willing to travel to your location, if you prefer.
