About

Cindy and Mindy grew from a love of drawing and childhood longings to be a book illustrator. Drawing from a very young age, Jean watched her sister and her mothering love of her beloved bear, Mindy.

Jean on the other hand was more of a tomboy. Not having a 'motherly' bone in her body. She was more interested in playing baseball, fishing, building things, and hanging out with the guys. Girls were boring, and too prissy for her. And while her sister was having tea parties with her bear and stuffed animals, Jean would sit for hours under her favorite Dogwood tree and draw and paint.

For many years Jean has been creating illustrations for her friends and family, but it wasn't until recently after drawing a family portrait for a friend at church, that someone suggested that she research Etsy and consider opening a shop. It…

Cindy and Mindy grew from a love of drawing and childhood longings to be a book illustrator. Drawing from a very young age, Jean watched her sister and her mothering love of her beloved bear, Mindy.

Jean on the other hand was more of a tomboy. Not having a 'motherly' bone in her body. She was more interested in playing baseball, fishing, building things, and hanging out with the guys. Girls were boring, and too prissy for her. And while her sister was having tea parties with her bear and stuffed animals, Jean would sit for hours under her favorite Dogwood tree and draw and paint.

For many years Jean has been creating illustrations for her friends and family, but it wasn't until recently after drawing a family portrait for a friend at church, that someone suggested that she research Etsy and consider opening a shop. It all seemed a little intimidating, but with little risk. The second thing was....what would she draw? Once Jean started to seriously consider the idea, she looked through her many drawings and decided to just keep her subjects simple. With that thought, Cindy and Mindy immediately came to mind, and thus Cindy and Mindy @ Etsy came to be.

Cindy is a sweet little girl that is a blend of both her sister and herself (Jean). She has unusually long legs and unkempt braids. At times, one of them may not even be a braid. All frazzled and stringy. She is usually sporting Mary Janes, and her favorite colors are red, blue and green. She is both a little 'prissy' and a little 'tomboyish'. . .but NEVER without her bear Mindy. And Cindy will be introducing some of her friends as well, along he way.

I hope that you will enjoy these illustrations and take joy in their character. Perhaps you may even see yourself somewhere along the way!
