Cheryl Jenkins Brickner-Biography

Post  Cheryl Brickner on Wed Oct 12 2011, 14:14

Born in Washington D.C., then moved to Florida where I grew
up on the water.This setting gave me a huge desire to follow in the field of Fine Arts.
After all, I had such a beautiful palette of colors to choose from and so much to write about starting as a child.
The origin of my writing, poetry and painting stems from my intensity of
feeling at that moment or because of a certain dramatic experience.
I am a breast cancer survivor of 11 years. Do to the seriousness of my illness, along with other illnesses and traumatic childhood experiences drew me in closer to becoming the writer/artist that I am now.
I thank God for all the talent he has given me and a purpose in which to share my life, along with my precious children and husband.
One of the writer's who inspired me is Fred West. He is a tremendous
writer/poet of whom I cherish our friendship.

Much love to all fellow writers/poets,
Cheryl Jenkins Brickner

Welcome Cheryl!

I see on FB that you lived where I live now, Lakeland, Florida. I'm an influx too, coming here January 2010 to marry my soul mate. It's a big change for an Ohio gal.

I too am looking forward to reading your work. I encourage you to share your art with this forum. If you have trouble uploading images, let me know.

Thank you for becoming a part of our forum! Our authors are very friendly and encouraging of one another. We strive for our best here, but mainly think sharing our inner selves is the most therapeutic part of being writers. None of us here feel perfect, understanding that camaraderie is a writer's best friend. This is why commenting on each other's work is so important, whether it be constructive, or just to put a smile on the author's face.

BIG hug bev
