Cindy-Wynne Kolding grew up in Fredericton, NB, and Sudbury, ON. Twenty years old and freshly graduated from Lakehead University, she drove across the country for a short holiday in BC and, apparently, forgot to leave.
She decided to attend the Victoria College of Art, as she had always had a knack for drawing. Over the years her study in arts and design continued with courses at the University of Victoria and the Emily Carr College of Art. She continues to develop her painting skills in private study with Anita Nairne.
Acrylic paints are Cindy-Wynne’s medium of choice. Her intuitive forays into her inner world start out as abstract art backgrounds. What develops from there is always a surprise.
Her deepest feelings and playful nature flow through her hands and embody her work. Her paintings bring positive energy into any environment in which they hang.
Cindy-Wynne worked as a graphic designer/assistant editor at the University of British Columbia. Currently, as a yoga therapist, energy-healing practitioner and qigong teacher, she loves to promote creative self-healing in her complementary business, Conscious Moments.
Arts Off Main is an artist-run gallery in Vancouver, BC offering affordable local art, gifts and framing.
