"If you can do something you love to do and earn a living, you've hit Utopia." - Unknown
A self taught artist, Cindy Tesrow Roberts was born in Sumter, South Carolina and attended school in Fisher, Illinois and Sleepy Eye, Minnesota. Cindy’s love of art began in grade school with the nurturing support and encouragement of her teachers. Cindy dabbled in crafts and painting when time permitted while raising a family. A hobby soon turned into a labor of love.
"I always loved crayons, paints, pencils, and paper – all the tools of art,” Cindy writes.
While attending community college, Cindy attended as many art classes and workshops that time permitted, allowing her to experiment with a wide variety of mediums and in doing so helped her to discover her own unique signature style.
Cindy’s art is reflective of her passion for history, seeing beauty in the old as well as delighting in the detail of things around us. She is inspired by the rich color and uses a variety of techniques to depict an aura of yesteryear while evoking a warm sense of nostalgia through her use of color.
