Wisconsin –-(Ammoland.com)- Nobody in the Cherry family remembers any art work on the refrigerator. It probably was not until Samantha Cherry was in high school that a profound understanding about just how artistically talented Samantha was, manifested itself.
A high school art project, a self-portrait done in chalk was being shown, when family, friends, teachers, and Samantha all came to the understanding there was real skill on display.
Miss Cherry’s art medium of choice is charcoal. She truly loves to draw in charcoal. She took these talents and earned an undergraduate degree in graphic design.
While in college it was suggested by her father that she explore the art of engraving on metal. Her father, Kevin Cherry, was in the fine gun business and understood the increased valued of a firearm that had been professionally engraved (www.cherrys.com).
