Cindy Hayden has been a glass addict for about 15 years. Her recent obsession includes long walks on the beach, picking up beach glass, rocks, shells and other natural stuff, which she hoards until she can utilize it in a piece of art.
Her other obsession is trying to save the world by recycling, reducing and reusing. This philosophy is integrated in her “beach scene” art. It utilizes cool scraps and found treasures into out of the ordinary designs. With a splash of colour, it brings everything but the sound of the ocean close.
She utilizes vibrant colours and unusual textures to create her unique state-ment. Her work captures the beauty of sunlight with the colours and textures changing throughout the day as the various natural light transmissions filter through the glass.
Cindy was one of the original artists involved in the Kamloops Courthouse Gal-lery Co-op. Cindy received honourable mention on three out of three of her pieces in the 2011 Kamloops Arts Council Juried Art Show.
She is also honoured to be one of the 10 artists involved in the Four Year ‘Peak Year Exhibition’ tour stemming from the 2010 Adams River Salmon Over Run. This exhibit is sponsored by Anne Morris and the Adams River Salmon Society and will be in Kamloops at the Old Court House from August 30 through to September 22.
