My name is Cindie Reiter and I am a landscape and decorative artist based on the West coast of Scotland.
2016 was a very busy year for me. I co-founded Lochcarron Gallery which aims to showcase comtemporary arts and crafts. It’s been a wonderful experience to work with two other very creative women and the other artists who have exhibited at the gallery.
I’ve had my work showcased by other galleries and have taken part in several exhibitions. I painted outside more ‘en plein air’ and experimented with other mediums, made things from old books, recycling them into objet d’art and continued to develop my decorative work by painting trompe l’oeil on chairs and boxes. I’ve painted pots, boxes and bothies, launched a range of ‘shelfies’ – wee paintings of local landscapes, which can be hung on a wall or popped on a shelf. A selection of my work can be seen in the photo above.
I’ve attended some great workshops and met and been inspired by some lovely, creative and talented people.
January is always a little quieter for me, a time for planning ahead to the coming year. I already have two exhibitions planned and I thought this would be a good time to spend some time setting up a space that brings together all my social media sites and share a little more about me and my creative journey. Do come and say hello.
