A U.S. East-coast native, Compton traveled to and from Costa Rica for several years. Finding the simplicity of daily life and magnificent natural surroundings in Costa Rica like wonderful gifts, she and her family embraced Samara as their new home. Cher received her BA with a concentration in fine arts from the University of Maryland. In addition to numerous exhibitions and participation in award-winning juried competitions throughout the U.S., Cher has taught and mentored young adults and children in her spare time.
