Former Firnew Artist Cindy Steigmeier

My process initially drew me towards expressing simple beauty, through capturing moments in nature or by guiding me to seize those fleeting gestures in a woman’s life that convey elements of her soul.  At some point, I started to envision combining the two.  As I walked in the woods, I would see in my mind’s eye a woman curled up or stretched out upon an old twisted tree.  Or floating on the pond.
