What the Business Does:

Working from her home based studio in Jupiter, she creates one of a kind original artworks in Acrylics on Canvas featuring local and tropical scenery. She also offers limited edition reproductions on stretched canvas of her original pieces.

How the Business Got Started:
Thirty years ago, Cherie created her artwork and sold it at local outdoor art festivals. She developed quite a following and was commissioned by many businesses to do illustrations for reproduction in the form of posters, clothing, greeting cards and other printings. But life happened, marriage, mortgages, moving out of the area, Cherie found herself in a “real job” and Tropical Impressions dwindled away.  After returning to the area and working many years in the corporate world, she has recently taken an early retirement and is now back to doing what she loves, the painting and creative process that she has missed so dearly.

Business Niche or Specialty:
Commissioned Artwork, Original Paintings as well as limited edition fine art Giclee’s (high end prints) on stretched canvas. Much of her artwork features Jupiter scenery such as the Jupiter Lighthouse, local Beach accesses, and other recognizable areas of interest.

What Sets the Business Apart:
What sets Cherie apart is that she is local and can provide clients with personal service, in-home and  business consultations and local delivery.  You can “try before you buy”.  Cherie will bring artwork to your home or office to view in your personal space before making a decision to purchase. In collaboration with local business connections, she will also work with framers to have your artwork framed to your liking. She utilizes local printers and framers M&M Studios as well as local craftsmen who make authentic driftwood frames with driftwood collected from our local beaches.
