Cindy Meadows is a passionate artist who began creating visual art at an early age as she watched her father, an architect, create beautiful drawings of his designs. After discovering the joys of painting, she immersed herself in the world of art.
Being certain of her artistic future, she attended the University of Florida, graduating with a Masters of Art in Urban Planning. After 20 years in the corporate workplace as an urban planner focusing on community planning and design, Cindy retired and followed her heart to create art full-time from her studios in Orlando and Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
Today, she is known for her expressive, colorful abstract paintings using heavy acrylics, oil pastels, fluid acrylics, mark-making, and mixed media.
Her artistic work is marked by exploration, especially regarding mixtures of colors and shapes, which gives expression to her distinctive abstract style.
With her fascination for communicating her feelings about nature, and her belief in the importance of preserving our waterways, beaches, oceans, and forests, Cindy's vibrant and expressive works convey her immense love of nature and the dynamic emotional aspects of its elements.
Also inspired by music and traveling to places, her paintings take on different meanings to each viewer. Her work has been shown in galleries, juried shows, retail establishments, private residences, and offices.
In her Own Words
We are always looking for the new and unusual, but we often overlook the most amazing part- the world around us. Every moment in our life holds beauty in its uniqueness, and the magic of nature's elements gives us emotional & joyful feelings. I immerse myself in nature to create art that can motivate viewers to contemplate nature’s beauty and understand the need for preservation and conservation of our world. A glance at the smallest object in nature like a blade of grass or the light shining on a flower can evoke a powerful emotion that translates into an art piece. At any moment, we can look at the canvas, admire the visual entity, and bring more peace and serenity to our hectic lives.
