Cyndi is a lifelong artist who eight years ago discovered her perfect medium – clay sculpting. She loves working with clay and finds it challenging, fascinating and forgiving. The process of creating sculpture is very organic and she allows the element of chance to influence the final posture and attitude of each sculpture. Each animal sculpture created is uniquely hand built, bisque fired and then carefully hand painted to create a keen sense of realism and personality. Her years of experience in the field of American Sign Language encouraged attentiveness to non-verbal communication, and she strives to apply those skills to communicate the essence of each animal that she creates. Her deep admiration and fascination with the unique beauty, dignity and humor of all animals is the inspiration for her sculptures as she celebrates the unique affinity between humans and animals.
Cyndi lives in Edmonds, Washington state.
