Alberta born, Cindy Bouwers is an artist and designer. After obtaining her BFA in Visual Communication Design and building a career as an accomplished graphic designer, as well as teaching several design courses at ACAD, she decided to explore a long buried design to paint and pursue her own artwork.
Her inspiration comes in moments of quiet reflection, watching the play of light, translating the shapes and patterns created in its path. She gleans subject matter from nature and everyday experiences and desires to bring the viewer into a shared experience, a moment of pleasure, a recognition of beauty, a sense of hope.
Cindy was recently awarded the Duggan Landscape Award by the Society of Canadian Artists and her work has been juried into group shows in Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto. Cindy currently works out of her downtown Calgary studio and is a juried, active member of the Calgary Artist’s Society and the Riverview Artists Group.
