Cyndy Hinkelman-Smith

As an artist my hope is to bring joy and inspiration into the lives of others with my paintings. I started painting with acrylics a few years ago and fell in love with the process and journey of each painting - playing with color, shapes, textures, tools and subject matter. Whether painting in a representational, abstract or whimsical style, I have found the creative painting process to be exciting and nurturing.   Facilitating playful & exploratory painting workshops, photography, and mixed-media art are also part of my creative journey.  

Having grown up in the Boulder area, I deeply appreciate & delight in the beauty that surrounds me daily.  My husband Greg and I love to travel, hike with our two dogs, mountain bike, ski, and go on family rafting & camping trips.  Lastly, and most importantly, I am proud to be called “mom” by my sweet daughter, Callie, currently attending Gettysburg College.
