Tricia Cherrington Ratliff is a professional artist in Northern Virginia who specializes in still life oil paintings. By combining antiques or discarded objects with organic items, her work celebrates the phases of life as well as the important reality of what is left behind after the end of life. Therefore, her painting approach employs both traditional methods and contemporary realist techniques to capture the intended mood for each subject.
