Artist Description

For many years, native Texan, Cheryl Long, has used various mediums to capture “the West of Today”. Her original company, “Pure West by Cheryl Long,” was formed in 1989 as a garment company for the romantic cowboy or cowgirl-at-heart. Using her own photographs of working ranches, she combined classical painting techniques to romanticize her documentary photographs. These painterly techniques were then applied to t-shirts, home furnishings, posters and note cards. Most recently, her accessory line was developed from actual antique European velvets, recycled found objects, and her own painted and sculpted appliqued leathers.
A professional artist, graduating from the University of Texas with a BFA in Fine Arts, her work is represented in many corporate and celebrity collection. Her one-of-a-kind wearable art and accessory line has be featured in many celebrity award shows and worn by Hollywood and music start. The vintage fabrics, found objects, and mix-media clothing is the original green and recyclable art. Truly Vintage Re-Invented!
