The Seasons and Beaches of Cindy Crimmin
"The act of painting has led me to see and to appreciate the world around me so much more than I ever realized. Whether I’m painting children playing, lemons and a silver bowl or light falling through trees in a New England landscape, my subject is the same. The light, texture, and forms that draw me to landscapes and still life are enhanced in my portrait work by the gesture and sparkle that light the human face. It is the process that enriches my life. If others enjoy the results, I am content."
Crimmin studied visual arts at the DeCordova Museum School in Lincoln, Massachusetts and the Art Institute of Boston. In 2011 she began private study with Jeanne Rosier Smith in her studio in Sudbury, Massachusetts. Crimmin has exhibited at the IAPS show in Albuquerque in June of 2013, as well as shows sponsored by the Connecticut Pastel Society (2013) and the Concord Art Association (2012, 2013). She is a signature member of the Copley Society of Boston, the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod, and the Pastel Society of America.
