Cherlynne Jeanne Sweet, born in Squamish on March 24th, 1953, and raised in Vancouver, received her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Education degrees in 1987. Since then, she has taught Art at the High School level; designed, built, and marketed her own line of furniture; won a Canada Council grant for her photography; received a scholarship for her journalism; and, at the moment, lives in Oliver, British Columbia, Canada. Her graphic design company, Phoenix Design, has been in operation for over 20 years, having changed and grown into many areas, one being landscape design.

In the beginning of 2011 a new awareness magazine was launched, South Okanagan AVANT-GARDE. This "Conscious Magazine" talks about all things ignored, overlooked, and of major concern to the consumer. The covering article is called "THE OSTRICH SYNDROME," when we bury our heads in the sand to avoid any conflict or confrontation. I started this magazine out of total frustration, and disbelief in what the average person tolerates out of laziness.
