Artist's Bio

Born and raised in Arizona, Cindy hails from a long line of old Arizona cusses. Her mother and dad still ranch in Wagoner, Arizona, which is between Wickenburg and Prescott.
Cindy completed her B.A. at Arizona State University, and her M.A. at California State University-Northridge. She began working as an art therapist, and then an elementary school teacher, taught community college for sixteen years,
and is currently a fine arts instructor for Valencia High School, where she teaches Ceramics, 3D, AP Studio Art, and is the National Art Honor Society Advisor.  Making art, teaching art, and writing poetry are where she devotes most of her time.
Guarding her studio are her three loyal canines, Nellie, the border collie, Brutie, the stray who jumped on her car and wouldn’t get off, and Bone, the stray found out in the desert. To keep the dogs working properly, they are overseen by Puss, the queen of cats, and Dandy-Lion, our blueblood.
