Those of you that have been at MB Massage Studio the past couple weeks will have seen the bright, beautiful new paintings up in our lobby. They are the work of Peter Simmonds, CherooArt. Pete ‘Cheroo’ Simmonds grew up in Bournemouth, England. He since relocated to the USA to pursue his passion for working with children in a summer camp environment for the Cheshire YMCA & Camp Takodah. Establishing himself as an online artist ‘CherooArt’, Pete’s artwork is highly influenced by his personal and intimate vision of the world he has travelled and experienced. His pieces have strong connections with the natural environment and as an artist he has been inspired to find creative ways of bringing a taste of the vast outdoors, inside. Pete’s work can be viewed and purchased at www.cherooart.com.
