Cheryl has exhibited, taught and has works in collections in UK, USA, Japan, Switzerland, Greece, Vietnam, Russia, NZ and throughout Australia.

Her Art To Wear garments have been exhibited in the UK, USA, NZ and every state of Australia.

She has had at least one Solo Exhibition each year for the past 12 Years.

Cheryl, although fine art trained is self taught in embroidery (she drew cartoons on her clothes with a sewing machine as a child and has only worn clothes that she has designed, drafted, embroidered and tailored since she was a teenager).

Early in her career she set herself a challenge that she would never copy, use computers, projectors, printers or any other medium on her embroideries, nothing but the stitch. It is just Cheryl her eye, her hands, and her domestic sewing machine.

Because of the spontaneity of her work she now can, and does embroider portraits live in front of an audience. This year she embroidered a portrait live of The Governor His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC. in front of an audience whilst being recorded for TV.

Cheryl accepts Commissions and collaborations and has created artworks as diverse as an embroidered cushion to portraits, to animal portraits, to art to wear waistcoats to mosaic installations.

Every year Cheryl choses to Give Back to society by giving three weeks of her time to worthy causes some of these have been opening her studio/gallery, ‘Beltana House’ a converted 1860s horse stable to raise funds for charity.

Cheryl adds to her instagram @bridgartcheryl nearly every day and puts a new blog on this website once a week, she also has a Facebook page Cheryl Bridgart Artist
