Cindy Baron : Exhibiting Artist

Cindy is nationally recognized in both watercolors and oils, painting the grand landscapes of the western mountains and coastal shorelines. Cindy was raised in south Bend, Indiana and has had the experience of living all over the country. Her art career started early when her 1st grade teacher noticed her drawings, which lead to weekends assisting teachers through high school at the Art Center in town. A full-time artist, she conducts workshops across the country and internationally and has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design in their Continuing Education Department.

Her passion in the arts began with pastels, which then led to watercolors and in 2000 was awarded signature status of The American Watercolor Society. In 2012, she became a signature member of Oil Painters of america, and is among a select group of artists who have received acknowledgement from peers in both mediums.  As a plein-air painter enthusiast, her extensive travels have given Cindy an abundance of information and knowledge which she shares with her students. She has become a highly sought-after instructor, teaching her skills around the country. She has had the privilege of judging many art shows and has been featured in numerous publications.

Her paintings reflect the beauty one can find in nature if you take the time to study the colors around you.  She can capture beauty in a blustering storm or the tranquil air of everyday places. Her portraits relay a story of human life as thought they were family or friends. The versatility of mediums and  subjects keeps her energized, excited and creative.
