My Story

I am a writer, poet, artist (mixed-media and surface design), photographer and yogi. My writing gives my clarity and a voice. Poetry offers me a place to feel. Photography and Art offer wonderful opportunities for me to connect to my heart & soul.

Self-expression in any art form is an antidote for the human experience and offers an infusion of natural healing. 

I am always excited and inspired by deep authentic conversations. I also enjoy hiking and exploring trails, valleys, beaches, and cities where I can capture nature and inspiration for my words and my art.

I have two grown kids and a supportive husband. Together with them and the people we love, it makes waking up and painting the pages of life so much more colorful. 

I plan to publish my first creative book in 2023.  It captures a personal healing period in poetry and prose and will include some of my digital sketches and patterns.  

I am always excited to meet new people, artists, writers, and those who share my passion for meaningful connection. If that is you, let's connect. You can find me on social media @cheydrea.

You can also send me a message or sign up for email notifications so we don't lose touch.  

Namaste, xoxo
