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, she decided to explore a long buried desire to paint and pursue her own artwork. This has led her along a new creative path and resulted in a rich body of work informed by her design background.
Inspiration for her paintings comes from moments of quiet reflection, in watching the play of light, translating the shapes and patterns created in its path. She creates her acrylic and oil paintings using an emotive and visceral combination of line, shape and texture and aims to bring the viewer into a shared experience, inspired by a moment of contentment, a recognition of beauty or a sense of hope.
Cindy currently works out of her downtown Calgary studio and is an active member of the Calgary Artist’s Society and the Riverview Artists Group.
