Cheryl Mocadlo is a lifelong resident of Wisconsin who currently lives in Appleton. Her paintings have been exhibited throughout Wisconsin in various art shows, galleries and fundraising events.
I paint to celebrate nature’s beauty around us, hence my partiality to landscapes and organics. Often mistaken for oils, my paintings are known for their visual aesthetic – life-like imagery and rich color palette. Throughout all are a consistent eye for detail and realism. I enjoy taking advantage of the opaque and translucent nature of acrylics. By layering pigments with varying levels of opacity and a range of application techniques, I achieve a depth of color that creates interest and movement. For me, the most exciting part of painting a canvas is the moment when it comes to life – no longer a two-dimensional image, but a destination to walk into or an object to reach out and hold in my hand.
I typically work with reference materials to guide composition. With commissioned pieces, this allows me to create a customized scene of a favorite place or a customized palette that complements a client’s room décor.
