CINDIA SANFORD

Cindia is known for her evocative and atmospheric paintings and drawings of landscapes both vast and intimate. She writes:

“As a child I spent many precious hours with my grandfather, exploring the forest and fields surrounding his home in Lancaster, Massachusetts. I learned to move quietly among trees, to listen, to feel, to see. The perfume of sweet fern, the haunting song of a wood thrush, the bitter/minty taste of a wintergreen leaf found on the forest floor. An ancient uprooted tree with gnarled roots pointing to sky. Much is sensed, yet unseen. A ripple just below the surface, a rustling in the shadows. Something undefinable passing through. My emotional and spiritual connections with the land are founded in these memories.”

She has exhibited nationally in galleries for forty years.
