Join me as I chat with Cheri about using Painter to turn your photos into a unique piece of art for your clients.

many of the finest portrait photographers in the country. She currently offers professional

Cheri’s fine art paintings only begin as a digital photograph, then they are painted by hand,
stroke by stroked using painting software, tablet and stylus and then printed as pigmented ink
on fine art giclee or canvas giclee. Her images have been published and won numerous awards,
been published in the PPA Showcase and Loan Collection books.
