Like you, Cindy is a lover of landscapes. She has known her entire life that she wanted to capture the stunning beauty of landscapes on canvas.

That is all she's ever wanted to do.

She's traveled all over the world. 

Currently living in Rhode Island, she's proud of her state. “It's a small state, but it's packed with some of the best coastlines to paint. They’re beautiful,” she says.

Plus, several months out of each year she gets to reside in Monterey, California, and paint some of the grandest landscapes a canvas can hold.

Cindy has won some of the top awards for both plein air and studio work. She also teaches workshops domestically and internationally to share her passion for painting.

Now, she has created an outstanding video,Elegant Landscapes, where she shares her secrets with you!

What will you learn?

Exactly how to begin with the end in mind!

Starting with a picture in your mind of the finished painting and then working backwards through a sketch or a photo. You’ll learn how to “see” in a whole new way. And you’ll learn the techniques to transfer it to the canvas to create an unforgettable painting.
