Cyndi Whiteside grew up in the small community of Fork River, Manitoba with a crayon in her hand. After completing the Graphic Design program at Red River College in Winnipeg, she went on to do in-house design at a printing company. When she had children, she moved her work home to spend precious moments watching them grow. In addition to design, she teaches art to students age 4-18, and loves exploring themes and techniques alongside her students. Cyndi’s work is created primarily in acrylic, watercolour and ink. Her greatest joy is creating paintings and live performance art pieces that connect with her clients and audience, inviting them to engage in the creative process and interact with the artwork in a unique and personal way.
