Cindy Stevens grew up in Connecticut, and has lived in Clinton with her husband Gary for 34 years. She has two grown children and one beautiful granddaughter, and comes from a family of artists. Her mom, Shirley Price, was a pen and ink artist, and her brother and sister both paint professionally. Cindy has owned and operated Snow’s Block Frame Gallery in her home for 24 years.
Cindy's had an affinity for art and creative projects through the years while raising children. She painted play sets for the local theatre group and taught after school art at a few school year and discovered her love of oil painting a little later in life after a plein air workshop in Maine.
Cindy paints in an impressionistic style. She enjoys playing with color and light, and expresses her own interpretation of the subject. She generally paints landscapes, especially involving water and rocks, flowers, and local scenes, and loves to paint plein aire. For the last three years she has been painting primarily with her palette knife. Painting on location allows her to capture light effects and represent intensity of color in a fresh way.
Cindy has been doing Stan Moeller's painting workshops on Monhegan Island in Maine for many years. She is drawn to Monhegan every fall and loves the Monhegan energy and the focus the island provides. She has also spent time painting in Italy and plans to paint in France this summer.
