Cindy has discovered that felt making provides the perfect canvas to explore color and texture and allows for the layered touches of whimsy and exuberant embellishment that she has employed throughout the many mediums she has worked in. Leaves, vines, and flowers are recurring themes in her designs of wearable art and home decor.
