"It is within the
that I can hear
of the Spirit"
Painting has always been a spiritual journey for me—a space to explore the breath of the spirit and depict its ever present indwelling of truth.
Each painting seeks to capture the essence of peace through elements of nature, by exploring the relationship between light and form.
After graduating with my Masters in Art Therapy from George Washington University, my work began to focus on the correlation between the healing aspect of art and nature.
Upon my grandfather's death, my passion deepened for creating art that would soothe the tattered soul. My prayer is that you will find a sense of hope and peace within my work.
"Painting for me is a
quiet moment of prayer
a space for me to
capture the light that
dawns upon us."
Cheyenne Trunnell has aspired to be an artist since she was 12 years old.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from East Tennessee State University. Her concentration was in oil painting with a minor in psychology. After graduating, she attended The George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where she attained her Masters in Art Therapy.
Her work has always had a spiritual undercurrent. No matter the subject of choice, she looks for the breath of the spirit and seeks to depict the ever present indwelling of truth.
Cheyenne's paintings have many layers of paint rich with texture and meaning. In 2009, upon her grandfather’s passing, she found a renewed desire to create art that soothes the worn and tattered soul. Her focus since his death has been to create paintings that would create an environment of peace for those suffering through cancer or other battles in life.
It seems that this was the cross road of her heart’s desire; combining her love of making art with her passion for the healing qualities of art.
"Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art."
Leonardo da Vinci
