Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration
Cindy Wider has been a prolific author and artist for the past 24 years with her artworks published in many magazines, newspapers and books in print and online. Recently she moved to the United Kingdom and as a result her artworks have undergone a radical metamorphosis from large bright bold contemporary paintings that she was creating in Australia to the much smaller, finely detailed and immaculate realism drawings she now creates. Art helps her to connect with her immediate environment and to find a sense of place within a social context. Her latest work reflects the much smaller and more confined spaces she now finds herself living in during her time in the UK.
Cindy has received several awards for her artwork in Australia and exhibited in many prestigious locations including the Outback Regional Gallery, Waltzing Matilda Centre Queensland, The State Library of Queensland, and the Sheraton Noosa Resort and Spa in Hastings Street among others. Her most recent joint exhibition titled ‘Contrasting Lives’ was shown at the TYTO Regional Gallery in Ingham Queensland. She has enjoyed regular gallery representation and her work has been purchased by many private and corporate collectors.
