Cheryl Medow incorporates her passion for the natural world with her classical training in the arts and her skills with digital imaging to celebrate the sublime beauty of nature. Her long-term personal photographic series, Envisioning Habitat, An Altered Reality blends multiple landscape “hyper-realistic” images to create idealized habitats for the birds she has chosen to celebrate. For Medow, her final compositions serve as a reminder for viewers of the majesty of the natural world.
Since first exhibiting her photographs in 2006, first being published in 2007, Medow has received many industry accolades and her work is held within many public, private and institutional collections.
Most recently, images from Envisioning Habitat, An Altered Reality have been on public view at the Chicago Academy of Sciences, Peggy Notebaert Museum, Chicago, Illinois and the Wildling Museum, Solvang, California. A portfolio of Medow’s work was featured in ZOOM Magazine’s issue, #256: Collecting Photography, 2019. In 2022, Medow is Runner-Up in the Altered Reality category featured in the NANPA’s Expressions Magazine. A solo exhibit of Medow’s series will be exhibited from April 9 – July 2, 2022 at PDNB Gallery in Dallas, Texas.
When not traveling in pursuit of her artwork, Medow resides in Santa Barbara, California.
She is represented by PDNB Gallery in Dallas Texas.
