Cindy Hayden has been a glass addict for over twenty years. She was born in Vancouver and has resided in Kamloops for the last 24 years.
Cindy first dabbled in stained glass in high school. She picked up the hobby several years later and then worked in a stained glass shop for 5 years. It was during this time that she gained her experience and taught several classes.
She had her first solo show at the Kamloops Arts Council’s Gallery in 2007. Her second solo show was at the Wilson House Extension Gallery in November 2012.
Cindy was one of the original artists in the Kamloops Courthouse Gallery Co-Op.
Cindy received honourable mention on three out of three of her pieces in the 2011 Kamloops Arts Council’/ Juried Art Show. In 2012 she also received honourable mention for the piece she submitted.
Cindy was invited to be one of the 10 artists involved in the two year “Peak Year Exhibit” tour stemming from the 2010 Adams River salmon over run. This exhibit was sponsored by Anne Morris and the Adams River Salmon Society and was seen in Salmon Arm at the Arts Council’s Gallery in 2011, as well as in Kamloops at the Old Courthouse in 2012. Her piece now sits at the beautiful Quaaout Lodge on the Little Shuswap Lake.
Her works have been in several a venues including: Tree Line Studios (Sun Peaks), Strong Picture Framing, Tranquille Farm Fresh, Trends and The Art We Are. Currently, they can be found at the Grind Coffee House, Old Courthouse and Lovecraft Studio (Tofino).
She utilizes vibrant colours and unusual textures to create her unique statement. 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 loves to create one of a kind pieces for private and corporate clients to suit their personal tastes.
