Cindee took my course, then sent me a painting she'd done. Needless to say I was blown away
and suggested we create this page for her so other can admire her pastel paintings.
A little about Cindee:
"Native Oregonian. Raised in Portland and currently live in Bend. I have worked with Chalk Pastels for
twenty years. The mosaic face is my signature style. I started drawing portraits twenty years
ago. I am finishing a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at Oregon State University Cascades. I love
ceramics. I am an oil painter. What I am finding I love about soft pastels is the hardness of meeting
the paper, and they are at once so blendable. I absolutely love them!! :-) I have two sons 21 and
18. They have my heart. Bend is an ever evolving Art Community."

Thank you so much, Cindee, for sharing your work, hopefully you'll send through more so we can
grow this page.
