Welcome to

Cherry Capri is a quirky punk-red haired performance artist and cult celebrity who embraces all that is Swanky about Southern California, Vintage Vegas and Mid Century Modernism EVERYWHERE!

Cherry was born in the late 1960s on an uncharted desert isle somewhere near Hawaii. She is the daughter of the brilliant chemist and teacher Professor Roy Hinkley, Jr. and movie star Ginger Grant. Everyone suspected that after living together so many years marooned on a deserted island, something "might happen" and Cherry's the living proof! With such great genes, she inherited a mix of brains, beauty and talent.

Now, her life is a world of vintage and neo-retro inspired fashion, exotica music, tikis and exotica music, Pop surrealism, low-brow art, classic cars, and Las Vegas Rat Pack era shenanigans.

photos by Taso Papadakis Cherry loves to paint and has been featured in shows alongside many other talented people. Her artwork is in the private collections of people like Las Vegas mogul, Steve Wynn and the late greats, Merv Griffin and Huell Howser. Her Royal Majesty Cherry was even crowned Queen of the Pasadena Doo Dah Parade and had 5 seconds of fame on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno (4:55 to go!).

What makes Cherry the most happy, however, is spreading education about how to stay Healthy and Happy AND Hip! Cherry writes Modern Lifestyle advice columns for Tiki Magazine, Java's Bachelor Pad Magazine and CA Modern Magazine.
