Artist's Statement: Youngest daughter of Western Swing creator Bob Wills, Cindy was born in California. Throughout her life she has lived in Oklahoma, Tennessee, Alaska (where she studied art at the University of Alaska Fairbanks), Florida, and all across Texas. This mixture of geographic and cultural homes has helped expand her view of the world and life itself. This composite view of America, along with her own personal experiences has contributed to a style that is as unique as her life. From mediums such as watercolor and crayon to art quilts, her vision translates into a feast for the eyes, mind, and soul.
Cindy now makes her home in the West Texas town of Turkey, returning to land her family called home in the early part of the 20th century. This environ helped her father shape his unique and truly wondrous style of music, as it has helped her channel her equally exceptional artistic visions; for much in the way that her father was born to create music, she was born to create her own 'music for the eyes'.
