Chloe Cheese, Sheila Robinson and Bernard Cheese.

November 3, 2010

Chloe above, telling her audience how her mother created this wallpaper for their sitting room.

Chloe Cheese has always planned to be an artist. Her childhood was spent in Great Bardfield

where there were several artists of note including her own parents Bernard Cheese and

Sheila Robinson. As early as she can remember she was accustomed to wandering

into neighbourhood studios. The absorbed activity the rich scent of paint and turpentine

which she took to be the normal way of life.

The most splendid of these houses belonged to Edward Bawden. Big white and utterly marvellous.

Edward Bawden was her friend since childhood, he introduced her to the Curwen Gallery in the 1970s.

She attended the Cambridge Art School from 1969-1972 and in 1972 won the Royal Academy

drawing prize before continuing her studies from 1973-1976 at the Royal College of Art.

Her first solo show was in 1979 “Still Life in London and Paris” at the Curwen Gallery

and several more have followed since then in London and Japan.

She has also participated in various group exhibitions, freelanced as an illustrator for the

Sunday Times, Vogue magazine, Terence Conran, Galleries Lafayette, German Vogue

and Marie Claire. She lives in a converted warehouse in Bermondsey near Tower Bridge.

Just out of interest Chloes’ parents Bernard Cheese and Sheila Robinson created some pretty

impressive work too, it’s easy to see where Chloe got her talents from.
