Meet Cindy Fields, the artistic mind behind Cindy Fields Creations. Cindy has been creating her lovely artwork for almost 30 years, and she love that the creative process continues to surprise her. She starts with a word or a color, and hours later, there is artwork! Cindy Fields Creations picture frames are one of a kind frames that use found, old game pieces and vintage pieces. Each one is hand painted and created one at a time. Being a full time artist has allowed her to do what she loves, be an at home mom, and has taught her to believe in herself. What inspired you to start creating your art work & how did you turn it into a business?
I was selling artwork to corporations and handmade paper was just coming into the market place and I was selling it like crazy. One day, I just heard the 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 it 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 remember wanting to be when you grew up?
Do you have any notable awards or accomplishments?
Working as a full time artist and doing what I love while 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.What makes your art work unique or distinctive?
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. If you look, most will have an XO somewhere.
What do you love most about the creative process?
When I'm chillin', I'll be outside (preferably) with a glass of wine or by the fire pit roasting marshmallows.
Any other trivia you'd like to share about yourself?
"This too shall pass"
"Not my circus, not my monkeys"...lol
