Artwork by Cindy Price McMurray
Cindy has always felt a connection with horses. Even when she was a girl she would draw horses. She is a 2001 honors graduate of the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit with a Bachelor of Fine Arts.
She lives in Bellaire, Michigan, and enjoys being in nature and interacting with all animals. In her work she strives to capture the spirit or soul of each individual animal making the artwork come alive. Horses have been her favorite subjects but she also focuses on dogs, birds, deer, or any animal that might catch her fancy. Cindy also specializes in custom animal portraits, working from photos of the pet.
Cindy works mainly in pastel because she loves the feel of it, the softness she can achieve and also the ability to move it around on the paper without any brushes to get in the way. Cindy has been attending art shows and selling her work since she was thirteen years old. She is now an internationally collected artist. She has won numerous awards, mostly for her paintings of horses - her favorite subject.
