Cindy Procious is a Tennessee based painter who paints portrait, figurative and still life subjects in a refined style that speaks to her admiration for the 17th century Dutch masters.
She often presents her still life subjects, in particular, in the kind of deep chiaroscuro favored for classic northern painting. She works in the kind of layered glazes characteristic of the classical method.
For her incisive portraits, Procious combines her classical style with a contemporary feel and a variety of composition approaches.
On her website, you will also find portrait drawings in charcoal.
Procious is married to editorial cartoonist Clay Bennett.
