Cindy has been very busy painting! She has decided to commit herself to creating a series of fine art pieces. As well as bringing in new clients to expand our mural work, we are working on new websites, which include Photoshop and Photography Tutorials.

Cindy is also doing a lot of talking about making a "How To DVD" on painting pillars, if you are interested in that or any other "How To DVD's" drop her a line and help us get her to change her priority list! We think that you will like her new Cre8iveways series.
