Cindy’s art interests are varied. She enjoys painting, quilting, and photography. She’s figured out a way to combine all three of her passions. Using her original photos as inspiration, she creates art quilts; painting the fabric and quilting to add detail. She was honored to have her quilt, “Adonis” (a bald eagle from the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center) accepted and exhibited in the Mancuso World Quilt Show in 2019.
After 25 years in education as a school secretary and one-on-one aide, Cindy retired this summer. Being around children, watching them learn and grow and develop a love of reading is near to her heart. This was the inspiration for her art box design.
As a resident of San Jose since 1968, Cindy has been involved in her community in a variety of ways. She has directed children’s choirs, painted murals in a variety of locations (teen group homes, women’s shelters, children’s Sunday school rooms in a variety of churches, etc.), and many other outreach services for the disadvantaged members of our community. She loves teaching adults and children and has conducted classes in Tole Painting, quilting, as well as a variety of other crafts.
