A former student of the Corona Academy in west London, Cindy left school with an Equity card and aspirations to act. Hand modeling, radio voice-overs, and acting jobs followed, but it was her mother’s request for a painting that led her to turn her hand to art. Beryl Cook, with whom she shares many parallels has been an inspiration. While neither have any formal art training, they both have an enviable ability to paint direct from the heart.
The late Professor Stan Smith, who nominated Cindy to join the Chelsea Arts Club, recognised the integrity in her work and the completeness of her own style, advising her never to take an art class.
Instead, she has spent the last decade producing wonderfully joyful canvases in acrylic and watercolor that make people smile and enrich their lives with all that she represents.
