Cindy has been painting since she was 9 years old. Cindy studied Graphic Design in Arizona and mixes a Graphic Style with her love of Color and life. She grew up in the midwest and has painted on 'Old Barn Doors,Weathered Wood' you name it and has always gone back to Canvas. She works with Raw Canvas and paints Original Hand Painted Floor Cloths as well as Stretched and Flat Canvas.
Floor Cloths are her Favorite to paint. Floorcloths originated in the 1400's when the women would go to the ships and take torn sails from the ships and stain them and use them for flooring to place over dirt floors. It is an Old Trade and of course it has evolved to what Professional Floor Cloth Artists make today. Her Floor Cloths are extremely High Quality and very Durable. She starts with Raw #12 or #10 Canvas, Size and Base Coat with 3 Coats of Primer sanded inbetween each coat. From there she paints her design and when finished adds 6 Coats of a Water Based Poly Finish to protect your ART. All Edges are turned and sealed and corners are mitered. They are Fantastic for wanting a Allergy Free Flooring and you just wipe off with soapy water to clean! Kids and Pet Friendly!
Start to finish is about a 3 week process for each piece depending on the design and size.
