Cherry Jeffs is a mixed-media book artist with a thing about wings. She earned a BA in Theatre Design from Wimbledon School of Art and has an entrepreneurial history as a graphic designer and jewellery designer-maker. A repetitive strain injury in her shoulder literally stopped her in her tracks, and helped her take the decision to pursue the fine art career she secretly longed for. Her books explore the boundary between 2D and 3D to create tactile, elastic spaces where magical encounters unfold. They are meant to be held and explored so that the surprises or juxtapositions inside can be experienced first-hand. She shares her time between the beautiful landscape of Devon, UK and her home-away-from-home in the Granada province of Spain. Her artwork is in private collections across the globe.
