Cindy Riccardelli's Profile

About

I am a self taught mixed media artist and have been a maker of things my whole life, or at least since age Two. I collect art supplies like most women collect shoes and I love to use them. I started out making narrative metal jewelry in 1991 and had a popular wholesale line for a decade. Since moving from coastal Maine to the mountains of western North Carolina in 2005, I have moved away from the production wholesale jewelry line and have returned to my creative roots of painting and sculpture. This has led me to figurative sculpture or ‘doll’ making and collage, wonderful vehicles for storytelling.
