The author

A native of Boise, Idaho, Cindy Smith has been producing artwork since early childhood. Although wildlife is her favorite subject, Cindy enjoys the challenge of creating remarkably realistic pencil drawings of anything—from people and buildings to flowers and automobiles. She also employs a variety of other media, such as oil, acrylic, and watercolor pencil; her collection of works even includes digital art and videos. Cindy spends many weekends camping, fishing, and taking photo references for her art in the mountains and deserts of Idaho with her family. Some of Cindy’s other hobbies are basket weaving, crocheting, cross stitching, and carving rhea eggs.
