About The Artist
Cheryl Quintana is a self-taught ceramic sculptor who lives and creates her works in Mazama,
WA. A native of the midwest, her sculptures reflect a love of all things animal, including the
occasional barnyard variety.
In her youth, Cheryl aspired to pursue an art degree and become an artist. In the end, her
parents had their input and she attained a B.A. from Wartburg College in Waverly, IA, majoring
in Computer Information Systems and Business Administration Management. This
jumpstarted a 30 year career, allowing Cheryl to travel the world over, installing computer
imaging systems for large multi-national corporations.
On January 3, 2017, Cheryl said “Goodbye!”, to the corporate world, picked up a 25 pound
bag of clay, and gleefully started teaching herself to sculpt. Never once regretting this
decision, she now aspires to constantly evolve her sculptures and hopes to reach her
audience through her work.
