The cut-paper collages
of Cheryl Piperberg were originally created and
published to provide "nourishing
prints for children." The bright, primary colors
and the amusing characters of her prints are educational
as well as fun. Each piece has a moral, ranging from environmental
issues to social and race relations. Before starting her
own company, Piperberg worked as an illustrator, creating
pen and ink drawings which were used in educational publications
for all grade levels. She has also designed educational materials
for hearing impaired students, as well as collaborated on
several children's museum exhibits.
Presently Piperberg is focused on painting, mosaics, prayer bowls, and colored pencil drawings. Many of the colored pencil drawings are reproduced digitally as giclee prints. Piperberg currently lives in Lancaster, PA.
