About Cindy Kamm:

"I view painting as a medium through which I can express my passion for color, design, and the amazing splendor of the natural world.

I have always been a keen observer, fascinated by all aspects of our natural world. I grew up roaming the deciduous forests and fields of Ohio marveling at all the intricate forms of life the woods supported. I moved from Ohio to Arizona as a teen, where I encountered an entirely new world of the southwestern deserts. I lived in Colorado for college and learned the splendor of the mountains and high alpine ecology. Eventually I landed on the west coast of northern California, in beautiful Marin County, where I have lived and worked for the last 40 years. This fascination and appreciation of nature led me into a life of teaching science: biology, ecology and conservation to children and adults through various educational institutions.

I have been making images all my life through a wide variety of technique: drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and paintings. For the last 15 years, I have primarily studied the art of drawing and oil painting under the contemporary realist painter Chester Arnold. Over the years, I have also taken multiple art classes at the San Franciscan Art Institute, U.C. Berkley, the San Francisco Academy of Sciences and College of Marin.

My intention is to use the canvas as a window to appreciate the essence of nature and wild lands, through real and imagined landscapes. Our urbanized culture has a way of pulling people away from the mysteries of the unpopulated, unspoiled natural world. I feel it is extremely important, especially now, to reconnect people to the beauty of wild places and thus create an appreciation for, and desire to save these places. Much of my work is based on biological principals with an eye leaning towards conservation. My years of experience as a photographer of wildlife, both on land and beneath the seas, helped me to see the intricacies of nature while gaining a better understanding of placement and design. In painting, I try to capture the essence and feel of a landscape and pull meaning and atmosphere from color with spare and confident strokes. I find this process enlivening and thrilling, and I derive great satisfaction sharing my work with others."
