Forensic Scientist, Visual Artist & Writer, Cher-Antoinette is multi-faceted and commenced her artistic journey in 2014 where she decided to let her work speak to her life. A self-taught emerging artist from Barbados her artwork is diverse and quite different to that on the local scene and her motivation comes from the stature of the female, especially that of the African Woman as well as her life experiences.
Cher-Antoinette’s Studio was opened in August 2017 and showcases the artist's belief in “The Synergy of Life & Art!”. Her media and style of choice are Alcohol Inks, Watercolour, Acrylics, Acrylic Fluid Art and Mixed Media expressions. Most recently she has ventured into Modern Pointillism and Hard Edge Abstract Art.
The studio is the home of C-Toi Wearable Art, a jewelry line that showcases her Acrylic Fluid Art. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and brings art to the average person in an affordable form. The pieces are also enhanced with healing crystals such as amethyst, hematite and black onyx.
The love of science drew the artist to acrylic fluid art as this medium truly expresses the chemical and physical interactions of the paint. Over the years Cher has developed techniques using substitute chemicals and paints as availability of commonly used materials proved to be difficult to acquire or just prohibitive in price. The resulting unique images can be seen in the collection FlowArtistry by Cher.
Cher-Antoinette is a nationally awarded visual artist, writer and poet.
