From the mind of Cindy DeGraw
A multidisciplinary artist.
BrushWorx are various two-dimensional painted works of art. The artwork is created with more than just brushes. Sometimes even fingers become a tool along with various other tools and gadgets.
Sculpting from clay is a creative process that frees the mind and allows oneself to be immersive in the process. Earthenware clay, paper clay, epoxy clay, plasticized clays - all are on my list of favorites. Each clay has different qualities and unique qualities to create the art at hand. It is with experience and many hours of hands-on time with the clays to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each clay type.
The very first works of art I sold many years ago, were portraits of pets that were deeply loved by their owners.
I have always been an advocate and voice for the animals.
It brings great joy to be entrusted to create a portrait of a pet that is a part of someone's family or, sometimes, their only family. It is an honor.
Art dolls, figurative art, figurative dolls, whatever they choose to call this art form has been an absolute joy in my art endeavors. The majority of my work centers around either Christmas or Halloween characters. In 2018 and again in 2019, I received two of the coveted Gold Award from the PDMAG, Professional Doll Makers Art Guild.
