Featured Artist: Cindy Davis

Deep Blue Sea Monoprint-Collagraph-smThe extraordinary thing about printmaking is that it yields multiple examples of art. Like individual birds in a flock, each print is an entity with its own characteristics and at the same time, a participant in an activity. Although each print is fruit of a larger work, it can be savored as an original piece of art.

Cynthia Davis's artistic education has been chiefly self-directed. Her father worked as a commercial artist in his home studio, giving Cindy a home life that promoted her lively interest in visual arts. After graduating from a high school that featured an intensive art program, Cindy chose not to apply to art school and traveled instead.

While living in Palo Alto, California she studied at community art centers and with non-credit programs at the state university. By the time her travels took her to Europe, Cindy had gained an academic and studio education that was a good preparation for the inspiration she found there. While in Italy she was introduced to Padre Diego Donati, a Franciscan artist who became her printmaking teacher. Further studies at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in Venice and Florida Atlantic University completed her graphics education.
