Cindy’s own words: “I was established as a Koori artist in 2007 when I joined a women's painting class called ‘mixup’ and I have never turned back. I'm known for my art work around the Gippsland area and became part of a book called NOT JUST DOTS....through the East Gippsland Aboriginal Arts Corporation.. I was commissioned to sell my artwork and was doing extremely well. Now I paint from home. This is my yarn and I am pleased to share it with you.
