The greatest gift given to Cindy by her mother was the ability to see and observe the splendor of the natural world. She now uses that gift to express herself with pastels and occasionally oils. Her goals in painting are twofold: to depict the beauty of commonplace segments of the environment and to capture a particular moment in time. She feels it is important to paint the landscape she knows and understands intimately, preferring to capture its beauty rather than the destruction of nature. Cindy uses her art to promote the conservation and preservation of nature’s open spaces.
In 2018 Cindy House was named by the Woodson Art Museum, located in Wausau, Wisconsin, as the 2018 Master Artist. House, the Woodson Art Museum’s 37th Master Artist, will receive the Master Wildlife Artist Medal during the “Birds in Art” opening festivities.
