Cindy Procious, born in 1965, is a contemporary American Realist painter. Recognized for her highly detailed paintings executed in the time-honored techniques of the Old Masters, her work is crafted with elaborate under paintings and then built upon with layers of glazes and color – the final effect is both intricate and delicate. With a keen eye for color, composition and light, her paintings are a blend of a devout appreciation for artistic tradition and a contemporary aesthetic sensibility.
A member of the American Society of Portrait Artists & Oil Painters of America, and the mother of three, Procious is married to Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Clay Bennett. Along with their menagerie of rescued animals, they recently relocated their studio and home to Chattanooga, TN.
As a student of the world around me, I have come to recognize that there is beauty everywhere. As a painter, my primary objective is to balance the dedication of improving my skill in the craft with the development of timeless and personal works.
