Native New Jerseyian Cheryl Bomba has been a resident of Mercer County for over twenty years. Cheryl became involved with photography as a special education teacher and adjunct lecturer when she bought one of the first digital cameras and began taking portraits of her students with autism. Since then, her interests have expanded to include capturing small moments in nature, architecture, and sculpture. 


Cheryl’s work has been juried into many regional, national, and international exhibitions, including those at The Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie, Grounds for Sculpture, the Monmouth Museum, the Pennsylvania Center for Photography, the Philadelphia Sketch Club, the Phillips’ Mill Community Association, and the Salmagundi Club. Cheryl's work has won numerous awards, most often awards for creative interpretation of themes. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission and the permanent collection of the Capital Health Regional Medical Center. 


In addition to creating her own work, Cheryl strives to help other photographers achieve their visions as the instructor of "iPhonography at Ellarslie," a hands-on course that teaches not only the basics of iPhonography but its creative potential as well. 


Cheryl is a member of the Arts and Cultural Council of Bucks County, Artists of Bristol on the Delaware, Belmar Arts, Bristol Photographers Club, the Guild of Creative Art, the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, New Hope Arts, and the Photographers' Group (Founding Member).
