When Cindi took her first art class she walked into the local art store clutching her supply list. The store-owner asked if she needed help, she smiled and said, "Yes, as soon as I touch every single thing in this store." Cindi eventually graduated with a BFA at BSU, designed a line of Christmas cards and has illustrated 6 children stories. She paints with acrylics, gouache, and an iPad. Her compositions usually begin with a good ol’ sharpened pencil. She lives in Boise with her husband and her dog named, Chet.
