Cheryl's love of the written word began early. At age eight, the library allowed her a mere two books per week. When her mother explained that Cheryl read a book each day, the librarian relented and she was allowed to check out seven books every week of summer.

As a young child, Cheryl's beloved Aunt Leota gave her a paint-by-number kit, and she discovered the joys of brush and paint.

Childhood gave Cheryl Hardin the gift of time.

Those childhood pleasures eventually turned into adult responsibilities and writing as well as painting took a back seat, for years relegated to spare time pursuits.

Retirement has given Cheryl freedom to expand on literary pursuits as well as artistic endeavors.

No matter what form it takes, Cheryl believes art should connect author and audience. Her goal is that the audience of her works will experience some of the same emotions driving her creativity.

“The works I create which are deemed to have a certain mystique are the ones where the project itself takes over. Whether a novel or a canvas unfolds, each artwork becomes what it was meant to be.”
