About cindy

There is an energy I hope to convey in my paintings and drawings that I imagine is similar to the energy musicians hope to convey to their listeners.  Much of my work is created with a soundtrack for the piece as inspiration.
Each painting is begun with an urge to physically interpret the visual and the emotional through the materiality of oil paint.
Each mark on the canvas, whether controlled or accidental, is met with a countermove based on the outcome.
Though born with a hand tremor I have learned to use my hand movement FOR me to support my expressive style and intuitive use of color.
I hope the work "moves" you!
