Cindy Roe
Psychological World by Cindy RoeAward winning artist Cindy Roe has been painting for 25 years. Ms. Roe's art has always focused on her reverence of nature and mans place in it. "My greatest pleasure is when I feel connected to the world we live in. I love experiencing the unique synergy of mind, body and spirit with nature. I'm compelled to capture it in my art." And she does capture this synergy in her highly regarded seascapes and landscapes for which she is regularly commissioned. Ms. Roe's art has been recognized nationally. She was honored by the national John Steinbeck center in Salinas, California for her painting of California agriculture, and many of her works have been featured in exhibits and art institutions across the country. In 2000, Cindy and her family moved from New York to San Francisco and in 2006 moved backto New York. She enjoys Au Plein Air painting which is perfectly in keeping with her affinity for the outdoors. She works out of her studio in Sagaponack, but only when forced to be inside. Cindy Roe's art prints are availablie at Hampton Photo Arts, Bridgehampton, NY.
