Cheri Taliaferro is an artisan who finds her inspiration in the profound beauty of love....
Love of Nature
From an early age Cheri Taliaferro understood the unique power of blending color, texture and shape into wearable art. Her fascination with ornament only grew as she traveled throughout the world and absorbed aesthetics from multiple cultures.
She became a fire fighter in 1993, spending six years as a "Hot Shot," and eventually realized her dream of becoming a smokejumper, where she was employed for six more years.
She spent her "off-season" working in Antarctica, at the South Pole and McMurdo, for the National Science Foundation, operating heavy equipment and working with military aircraft.
After traveling the world for over a decade she went to the ends of the earth to find the love of her life, Will Taliaferro. They met while working in Antarctica, married and now have 2 beautiful children.
Cheri's exposure to these extreme elements
She draws inspiration from things as varied as the stark, dry landscape of the African prairie land, to the lush green jungles of Costa Rica, to the white desert of Antarctica. Her design ideas take root in the earth, sea and sky, but her chic pieces appeal to the trendy and savvy uptown girl as well as the adventurous traveler.
