Christmas giveaway day 4!

Cindy Adkins is a New Orleans-based gallery artist known for her extensive mixed media work.  “I love working with texture, whether it is with vintage images, soy silk, layered paper, fibers, or embroidery.  Every day presents an opportunity to incorporate new materials and that adds to the excitement of this process.”

Cindy Adkins holds a Master’s Degree in Humanities.  She feels that her background in this field gives her a broader outlook that she brings to her own work.  “Often, those aspects of  classic and modern art, music, and literature are encapsulated in various pieces and it is always with a touch of whimsy.”
Following Hurricane Katrina, Adkins gained worldwide attention for her 6-month project that is a tribute to the people of the New Orleans area who have gone through the recovery process.  “The survivors have risen from the ashes and I wanted to make individual pieces to honor their resilience and celebrate the human spirit.”  Now her work is available to collectors everywhere.  

“Through my art, I create pieces that I want people to look at time and again, in each instance, noticing something new.  That is the joy of creating as each piece contains a message.   I always say that the art process is like giving birth--there  is a part of me in each one.”
