Cherie Roshua

Dickinson, ND

Cherie Roshau was born and raised in rural Montana, rooted in the heart of rolling prairies.  She relocated to Dickinson, ND to study art and education and lived most of her adult life living on the edge of the mysterious badlands, which Theodore Roosevelt referred to as his “healing place”.  Her artistic inspiration is rooted in the environment and its visual stimulation including the diversity of the people who call North Dakota home.  The culture is fascinating, romantic, rustic and a place of serenity and spiritual rest. 

 

Like Pablo Picasso, Cherie experienced several unique artistic periods in her life. She began with graphite and oil painting and evolved into acrylic, graphite pencil, watercolor, and colored pencil.  Cherie enthusiastically experiments with glazing and layering with her acrylic paintings.  She studied art at a four-year university and studied under nationally known artists through workshops and art retreats. 

 

Cherie received people’s choice as well as judge’s choice in several art shows in Montana and North Dakota.  Recently, her photography was featured in several national news stories (NBC, ABC, CBS, Good Morning America etc.)  featuring her photos of bison in rut in the summer of 2019. It is Cherie’s hope that you hear her voice through her art. Cherie Roshau’s art is fostered within her heart and soul.  She has a deep appreciation for the rich texture in nature and the colors embedded in the earth.  The daily experiences that surround her life, whether it is human interaction, animals, or Mother Nature, emphasize the essence of her focus as she studies the blank canvas.  Cherie’s art is her voice, creating ideas and feelings for the viewers.

 

Artist Statement

“My art reflects my deep passion for rural life in Montana and North Dakota. I especially delight in painting/drawing and emulate my subjects through the lens of reality, capturing the unique expressions and essence within my artwork.  If a person views my art and comes away with a sense of delight, wonder or a smile, I have achieved my goal as an artist in a world that tends to be chaotic and uncertain.”
