Cherie was introduced to the art forms from a very young age, Her mother and father, both avid art fans took pleasure in encouraging the children, hence all of them growing up with a true appreciation and love of the arts.
Cherie’s parents took her to the theatre, cinema and regularly got her self-lost in art galleries where her siblings exhibited, only to be found sitting in front of a piece of work, admiring it and commenting on the styles. This was the beginning of a lifelong dedication to art, in all of its forms, embracing and practicing as many as she could.

At the age of 15 she got a part as an extra in film, thus spurring her advance into acting, as well as doing singing, painting and photography, she began acting and dancing lessons, gaining parts as a featured extra in several films, lead in commercials and gaining knowledge in ballet, flamenco and belly dancing.
