Schmidt, Cynthia - Cranky Cats

Property categories:


I am a self-taught artist. I usually enjoy not knowing the "rules" because of the freedom it allows. I just love this art thing! It's so much fun to be one of the nomadic artists who set up little temporary communities at art shows each weekend in the summer.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in music from Binghamton University and a Master of Science degree in Child, Family, and Community Studies from Syracuse University. I did take a drawing course and a sculpture course along the way, but that's about it for my formal art training. I started painting in 1994, making decorative "welcome" signs,etc. In 2001, I went through a rapid evolution and began painting portraits and seascapes. I have settled into (for now) creating fantasy, fairy tale paintings and The Cranky Cat Collection ™.

My family members (husband, twin daughters, and cats) often serve as art consultants and models ("Come here and let me look at your nose"). We live in central New York State, near Lake Ontario. The long winters are conducive to intensive painting. In spring, the annual battle ensues between "I want to go out and play" and "I need to paint something".

Thanks! - Cindy Schmidt
