About Cheryl Bridgart

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. 

Cheryl is a multifaceted artist she draws, paints but is internationally recognized master of the art form of Fine Art Freestyle Machine Embroidery and her museum quality Art to Wear clothes.

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

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).

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.

“This theoretically could last a million years. But the manufacturer basically said it’s only warranted to do maybe 10,000 years,” Dr Peralta said.

It is rocketed via the Astrobotic Griffin / NASA VIPERROVER / SpaceX Falcon Heavy mission headed to the Dark side of the Lunar South Pole.

Some of the artists included in this collection are Ken Done, Ernie Dingo, Eric Rhoads, the world’s leading art promoter, Joseph Zbukvic, number one water colour artist in the world, De Gillett, Alvaro Castagnet, Herman Pekel.

Cheryl said “We are only on this world for a certain period of time it’s pretty incredible to be included, I am honoured, I feel overwhelmed   my art — my creativity — it’s on the Moon!”
