Cheryl and her partner are part-time Queenstown residents. She writes and he paints, and they both feel very grateful to be able to do that in such a welcoming community. Cheryl is currently working on an historical novel set in lutruwita/Tasmania. She also develops and proofreads publications for local artists and organisations.
Both the pieces that Cheryl will share at MOONLAND are set in Queenstown. Her short story, 'Six O’clock Baby', deals with loss, acceptance and new growth. The poem, 'Rock and flesh and flower', was written in response to an invitation by local artist Helena Demczuk to contribute a creative piece to her exhibition 'Certain Women 3'.
