As a toddler, Cindy Bartosek was exposed to the two mediums that would inform her own artistic endeavors: textiles and photography. For much of her life, photography was her artist expression. After retiring, she began exploring a wide variety of fiber techniques through classes and workshops with nationally and internationally recognized instructors including India Flint and Wen Redmond. To merge her interests in photography and fiber art, she is experimenting with multiple mediums and techniques to incorporate her own imagery in her work. Cindy has won numerous awards for both her photographs and fiber art which have been shown in juried and invitational exhibitions and group shows around Florida and in New York City. She has added another dimension to her fiber art experience by curating and jurying fiber art exhibitions. Cindy teaches at the Armory Art Center and the Mandel Public Library in West Palm Beach and other venues around the state.
