I’m Cindy Morefield, and I make paintings that explore color, materiality and process, and I love to share these works with the world.

I also love to collaborate. Whether I’m creating a commissioned painting for a collector, working with galleries and dealers to find good homes for my work, co-creating with other artists, helping others create, planning my year, or cooking a meal, I’m learning that it’s incredibly fun, energizing and effective for me to create with others.

The pursuit of education, employment, and adventure has taken me from my home town of Bristol, Tennessee/Virginia (yep, it’s on the border) to all fifty United States, Canada, Israel, Palestine, and Italy. Along the way I earned a BA in Studio Art from the University of Mary Washington and an MFA in Painting from Northern Illinois University. In addition to making and selling art, I’ve worked as an election official, college art instructor, private art instructor, Human Resources clerk, secretary, bookseller, barrista, and library assistant.

These days, when I’m not in the studio, you’re likely to find me reading, keeping up with my friends, family and collaborators, walking around our lovely town, hiking in the woods, playing Rock Band, working on our fixer-upper house, or doing something related to food. When I’m not traveling, I’m helping my husband attend to the needs and desires of our magnificent feline, Fannie.
