Cindy Beatteay is a multidimensional Artist whom identifies herself predominantly as a painter.
Cindy is a forth generation Californian whose childhood full of art training and exposure to the construction industry paved the way for a business in the Design and Decorating field. In her twenties she traveled the world working as a International Flight Attendant and then left that to pursue a higher education. Cindy earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in both Art Studio and Art History in 1993 from the University of New Mexico. At the same institution, she studied Art Education and Porcelain Ceramics as a Masters student in 1998. Cindy also studied realism painting in the studios of the Maroger Painters of Albuquerque who taught her the painting techniques of the 17th c. Masters. She has shown and sold her work nationally and internationally and continues to do so today. In 2001 Cindy showed her work in the New Mexico Fine Art Museum along side notable Artists Georgia O'Keefe and Judy Chicago. She currently lives and works as a full time Artist in Orange County, California.
"I love paint and what can be done with it. Its fun to create illusion out of a small blob of oil and pigment. I think it is a seductive medium for both artist and viewer".
