Cindy Stevens grew up in Connecticut and has lived in Clinton with her husband, Gary, for 35 years. She has two grown children,and two beautiful grandchildren, and comes from a family of artists. Her mom, Shirley Price, was a pen and ink artist, and her brother and sister both paint professionally. Cindy has owned and operated Snow’s Block Frame Gallery in her home for 24 years and opened her own art studio in downtown Clinton on May of 2014. Cindy Stevens Fine Art is located at 30 East Main St, Clinton, CT and Cindy is thrilled to be painting full-time!
Cindy’s had an affinity for art and creative projects through the years while raising children: she painted play sets for the local theatre group and taught after school art at a few schools in Clinton. She studied watercolor painting for a few years and discovered her love of oil painting a little later in life after trying a plein air workshop in Maine with her sister.
Cindy has taken Stan Moeller’s painting workshops on Monhegan Island in Maine. She seems to be drawn to Monhegan every fall and loves the Monhegan energy and the focus that a week on the island provides. Cindy painted in Italy and in France with Stan Moeller and his workshops...Gary really enjoyed those trips as well!. Cindy has an impressionistic style and primarily paints with a palette knife. She enjoys playing with color and light, and expresses her own interpretation of the subject. She generally paints landscapes, especially involving water and rocks, flowers, and local scenes, and loves to paint plein air.
Painting on location allows her to capture light effects and represent intensity of color in a fresh way. Cindy is an artist member of the Paint and Clay Club in New Haven, the Guilford Art League, the Madison Art Society, and the Clinton Art Society. Cindy’s work can be found at Maple and Main Gallery in Chester, CT, and in Cindy Stevens Fine Art in Clinton. Cindy’s studio has her original oil paintings, as well as mugs, prints and notecards made from her paintings of Clinton. She hosts very fun Paint Night painting parties, and Kids Art classes every Tuesday and Thursday with her daughter Amy.
