About Our Founder
Cheryl Thiele, Principal
Cheryl Thiele's passion and success in the art world spans over thirty-three years. While seeking to make the process of acquiring fine art more accessible, Cheryl found a distinctive niche developing art programs—from building health care and corporate art collections to fulfilling mandated public art requirements.
Cheryl holds an MFA with studies in Art, Creative Writing, Business, Design, Computer Technology, Music, and Audio Engineering. In addition to being the founder and president of Creative Art Services, Inc., Cheryl is the author of a series of twenty-three books that teach self-enrichment through journal keeping. Her latest releases, The Sacred Journey, Daily Journal For The Soul and The Sacred Journey Cards, continue to celebrate international acclaim.
Robust in her commitment to volunteerism for more than twenty-five years, Cheryl helps children foster self-esteem through goal-setting, journal keeping, and community art projects. She was a docent at the Orange County Museum of Art, researching contemporary artists and offering tours to adults and children. Many of Cheryl's designs incorporate her, and our love, of nature. Always looking for ways to give back, she is a naturalist for the American Cetacean Society and was a docent for The Nature Conservancy, Crystal Cove State Park, and Laguna Coast Wilderness Park leading guided hikes and mountain bike rides.
Cheryl’s deep respect and love for nature compliments her integrity and acumen in the business world, shaping her ability to cultivate holistic and comfortable environments. In addition to working closely with artists in a variety of media, stretching the boundaries of their known styles, Cheryl observes and studies current art and design trends as she attends gallery and museum openings, conferences, and seminars throughout the world.
