Artist Bio

Cynthia (Cindy) Rodgers was born into a large Italian family of artists- though her passion for art didn’t manifest until later in life. She began expressing her love on paper for the things that have been such a big part of her life- the gift of hospitality. She has been an award winning artist for her work in pencil and photography, also receiving recognition in local art shows.

Artist Statement

While living in a small retirement town in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Galax, Virginia- known as an artistic destination- she was swept into her creative world of watercolor painting. Local art classes became a part of her life’s agenda. She stays busy creating beautiful watercolor cards for many friends, family, and teaching now her great grandchildren about the arts at an early age. The blending of her gift of hospitality and painting seems to be such a natural way of expressing them both. Her watercolor cards can become a framed piece of art to warm ones home.
