Cindy Williams Artist Biography:

Cindy Williams is a pastel artist. Her art consists mostly of black and white paintings of actresses from the 1920s.

Cindy's favourite era is the Art Deco era or Jazz Age.

Her view on the actresses and ladies of that time is that they were very much more glamorous than modern day actresses. It was a time between wealth and poverty. People had an escape when they went to the cinema and saw those lovely glamorous beauties on the big screen.

A couple of Cindy's favourite Jazz Age actresses that she paints frequently are Louise Brooks and Joan Crawford.

Cindy is always discovering more actresses from the past. She enjoys painting different portraits of each one.
