Visiting Artist Cheryl Forsythe – Alpine Iris Designs

Cheryl Forsythe, Alpine Iris Designs, will be our Visiting Artist at Jemez Artisans Gallery from May 24th – June 6th. We hope you’ll stop by and check out Cheryl’s beautiful creations!

 

Cheryl Forsythe grew up in Northern NM,  playing in the Jemez mountains since she was a child. After attending the Art Institute of Seattle for Fashion Marketing, she owned a small gallery in Los Alamos and opened and operated small gifts shops for resorts in Santa Fe. She then worked for a wholesale jewelry design company in Santa Fe before moving to Jemez Springs 20 years ago for a calmer way of life; she found her solace in the mountains through climbing, trail running, skiing and exploring the backcountry.

 

Though her passion is working with silver, she is easily side-tracked by other creative methods. She loves the meditative feel of carving wax to mold for silver jewelry or linoleum for print making. The natural variations in stone and wood are uniquely beautiful to her and are often incorporated into her work. She recently began working with lasers and is enjoying the versatility it provides, allowing her designs to be applied in new ways on a broad spectrum of mediums.

 

To keep updated on new works, check out Cheryl’s creations on Etsy and Instagram.
