Cindi earned degrees from Lesley University College of Art and Design (formerly AIB of Lesley University) in Boston, MA and The Corcoran College of Art+Design in Washington, DC. She has also studied at SACI in Florence, Italy.

She currently is residing in Albuquerque, New Mexico where she has been influenced by the vast open spaces that speak to emptiness and isolation.

Cindi has spent several years traveling in order to research women's issues. This allows her to discover threads of connection to address the current state of affairs regarding women's choices about their bodies. 

Cindi has had exhibitions in California, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Washington, DC, Canada, and Italy.

Most recently, she traveled to Ireland to enjoy a month long residency in the Burren where she found inspiration from delving into the concept of identity through place.
