Meet Cindy Fields of St. Joseph, MI. Cindy is the talented lady behind Cindy Fields Designs, one of a kind picture frames that use found objects, old game pieces and vintage pieces. Each frame is hand painted and created one at a time. Cindy has had the privilege of being a full time artist for 28 years and has loved every minute of it. It allowed her to be an at home mom, taught her to believe in herself, create what she loves, and to stay up to date with social media and connect with so many people. Cindy loves to learn and grow and then use that in her artwork, she loves people and knowing that she is connecting with others through art. Why did you choose to partner with Yellow Door to sell your art work?
I love the concept, the people, the space that allows so many talented artists to share their gift.
Do you have any notable awards or accomplishments?
Working as a full time artist, doing what I love and paying the bills is a BIG accomplishment... I have been blessed to be in many galleries from coast to coast and accepted into many fabulous art fairs.
It always changes. I have to do a new design every year, for me... I work in series so I work on many pieces at the same time and if you look most will have an xo somewhere.
What do you remember wanting to be when you grew up?
I was selling artwork to corporations and handmade paper was just coming into the market place and I was selling it like crazy... and one day I just heard this voice say, you can do this!! I quit my job and did it! I love texture and mixing it up, so I found a style that was mine and built into 15-20 art fairs a year and then went into galleries and then into a wholesale account for a large furniture store.
What do you most love about the creative process?
Seeing what happens... the oops that turn into wow!
Music!! Reading, dancing... THE BEACH!!
