Cheryl Maeder began her photography studies while living in Switzerland at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Zurich. She left Switzerland and returned to the United States. After much hard work and perseverance, Maeder opened a photography studio in San Francisco. For the next 15 years, she worked as a national fine art and advertising photographer shooting campaigns for clients such as Sony, AT&T, Visa, Calvin Klein, Marriott Hotels among others. Maeder’s work was the inspiration for the Dove Campaign on Real Women, Real Beauty, which was shown in the United States and throughout the world.

In 2000, Maeder traveled through the coastal towns of the Costa Brava in Spain where she developed her current fine art body of work entitled Dreamscapes. She relocated her photography studio to South Florida in 2004, where she has been focusing solely on her fine art work.

Cheryl Maeder’s photography work is in the permanent collection of the Frost Museum and has been awarded the Artoteque Biennial Contemporary Art Award of Excellence, International Color Awards Photography Masters Cup, Women in Photography International, and Hasselblad Lurzer’s International Screenings Award. Her photographs have been auctioned in Sotheby’s and have been collected worldwide, including Shanghai, Paris, London, Beirut, Miami and Toronto. Her work has been hailed by The Art Economist Editor in Chief, Bruce Helander, as “one of those rare talents that effortlessly combine painting and photography into an engaging visual statement.”
