Cheryl has over 20 years of high end retail experience. She started her career with the McCaffery/Pelham family in Banff, Alberta at Canada House Gallery.

She opened The Prow's sister gallery 14 Bells Fine Art Gallery in 2017. The gallery has gained a reputation for quality art and attentive service and has earned a loyal local and international clientele.
