Artist Cindy Billingsley
Cindy is one of those few artists that both sculpts and paints. To her painting and sculpting is like speaking in two different languages, she might be able to express to you an idea better in one then the other. She spends her time working in bodies of series in both Wildlife and issues in society like Alzheimer's disease. With her art she wants to try and make a difference in the world, to bring awareness, to communicate and bring about change.
Her wonderful sculptures have a real lifelike quality, especially her animals in clay. They look as though they could just get up and walk off. She prefers to capture the spirit and gesture of an animal in as few a details as possible.
She has been a painter from a very young age. Her love of animals drew her to the more unusual ones and solitary ones like the Okapi, and octopus. The artist spends most of their time alone in the studio and she found it interesting to be drawn to these types of animals.
She likes to really research her subjects even if she is just limited to zoos and nature centers.
She spends her days working in her studio in Tennessee, on work for national exhibitions, public art, and commissions.
Cindy hopes that one day art will bring enough awareness that animals will always have a place in this world.
