CHERI RECKERS


Statement

Painter, designer and fiber artist, Cheri Reckers’ work is recognized by her signature bold patterns and colors.

Cheri received her BFA with honors (Advertising & Fashion Design) from the Columbus College of Art & Design. She has been creating her one of a kind hand dyed wearable art for over 20 years. The artist shares her Jarales, New Mexico home with sculptor Michael Ceschiat and several four-legged friends. When not creating in her old adobe studio, she can probably be found cooking up a delectable dish in the kitchen or out walking a few of her canine companions to gather inspiration for future artworks. Her award winning designs have been exhibited worldwide and featured in such publications as Fiberarts and Niche magazines.
