Artist Statement

An evolving merger of genre inspired a new series exploring the iconic Alberta Rose that so aptly reflects our province and people. Through my painting, I have explored the wild Alberta rose in various stages, seasons, or habitats. Combining a strong color element, dynamic light and a loose realistic style, I explore their colours, shapes and beauty. I love to look into them, discovering their “souls” and personalities or perhaps capture the Alberta Rose in the landscape or various habitats allowing the viewer to draw the parallels between it’s nuances and the province and people.

Thru the artwork, I look to tell a story of the Alberta Rose, which in turn, gives the viewer opportunity to find their own memories or connection to “The Iconic Alberta Rose.”


Cindy was born and resided in Spruce Grove, Alberta until 2009, at which time she moved nearby to Stony Plain. She is a self-taught, professional artist, who was interested in art since childhood and in 1991 decided to pursue it as a full-time career. She is very active in the arts community and is a longstanding member of the Allied Arts Council of Spruce Grove and juried member of the Alberta Society of Artists and volunteers with both organizations. She currently teaches classes and workshops at Metro Continuing Education in Edmonton, the AAC in Spruce Grove, and various communities in Alberta.

Cindy is an award winning artist and her work can be found in collections such as the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Alberta Treasury Branches, Parkland County, Saskatchewan Government Insurance and the City of Spruce Grove as well many more corporate and private collections. She is represented by the Art Gallery of Alberta, Rental & Sales, Edmonton, AB, Candler Art Gallery in Camrose, AB, Leighton Art Centre, Calgary, AB, and The Spruce Grove Art Gallery, AB.

For many years Cindy primarily worked in watercolour or acrylic painting bold floral portraits. In recent years she has broaden her scope of work to include landscapes, flora and fauna of various conservation and natural areas in the hopes she can generate appreciation, educate and promote the importance of conserving and protecting natural areas, habitats and their species.
