Cheryl Liston


Atmospheric seascapes and landscapes in oil and watercolour inspired by the ever changing light and colour with in the sky, land and coastline.

 I’m a self-taught artist, originally specialising in watercolours until 2019 when I decided to take on a new challenge by working with oil paint. ​Painting is my way of escaping the busy and hectic reality of day-to-day life. I love the freedom that painting with oils gives me, allowing my work to be more abstract and expressive. 

I have a particular love of painting the sea and all things coastal, there’s something so uplifting about the vastness of the skyline sitting over the ocean. I find much of my inspiration in the countryside of Cambridgeshire, where I
live. The beauty of the landscape changing, sunrises and sunsets, and in particular, moody skies. I capture these atmospheric elements in my paintings by embracing colour, light and tone.

​I travel to many parts of the UK and absorb as much of our beautiful landscape as possible and love to share my process and inpiration with others.
