About

Cheryl Matsumoto

C.Scapes Studio of Cheryl Matsumoto is an entrepreneurial venture that springs from my artistic nature.

I work from a home-based studio surrounded by the beautiful mountains of Northern Colorado where imagination is easy to come by.

I use a mix of current and traditional media to create professional designs that will cater to your business needs at rates you will feel good about.

I invite you to browse though my website. It will give you a solid view and understanding of my graphic design work.


Personal Philosophy

 Look up for the answers.
 Honor the day.
 Bring your best.
 Be gracious.
 Give meaning to the journey.
 Be in balance.
 Celebrate the act of existing.
 Be open to miracles and blessings!
 Yes or no, there are no maybes!
 Surrender it and give it over.
 Give errors gladly to correction.
 Perfect gets in the way of better.
 Let it go.
 Push in, not away.
 Turn inwards, it is a personal hello!
 It is a direction not a destination.
 Truth is always victorious.
My true self will never be lost.
It is loved, set free, and will begin anew.
