Cheryl Harper grew up in the suburbs of upstate New York cities. She is the daughter of a passionate feminist/entrepreneur mother and a civil servant father. One of four siblings, Harper was the only artist in her extended family and, for the most part, a quandary for them. Trained as a printmaker, her earlier work focused primarily on large one-of-a-kind woodcuts. However, after several years, she decided to bring her graphic and narrative sensibility to sculpture. She wanted to explore a major difference in scale and medium. Harper brings her interest in biography and social issues to her work, in mostly one-of-a-kind pieces, documenting the foibles of American politics and social issues through her unique artistic voice. She lives and works in Paoli, Pennsylvania, and is represented by the James Oliver Gallery in Philadelphia.
