My name is Cheryl Hamilton McDonough and I live in Eagan, MN with my husband, Kevin, and two miniature pinscher dogs, Phoebe and Newt. I had always planned and saved so I could retire early, so at the age of 55 I retired after 25 years in the computer industry to devote my time to my creativity. It is interesting how "life gets in the way" because I can come up with the easiest excuses to not work on my creations. I received my Masters in Human Development with an emphasis in spirituality from St. Mary’s University of Minneapolis, MN. That education process helped shape and direct my awakening into my creativity.
My illustrations are done on the computer using Adobe Photoshop and Corel Photo-Paint. My creations are influenced by continued readings of good books, my meditations, and life.
