About Cheryl Humphreys

Cheryl Humphreys is an emerging American contemporary artist based in Los Angeles, CA. Her education and career as a designer have played an integral role in her ability to communicate through the medium of paper. The artist’s blind embossings eschew the trappings of traditional printed work, leaving only shape and shadow visible in an effort to draw the viewer closer and create a quiet and intimate conversation.
