A little about me.
I am a freelance artist and Illustrator, born and brought up in South Africa, and now living in the beautiful country side of Cambridge UK with my amazingly supportive husband and son.
I enjoy working with many mediums, but watercolour has to be my favorite. I fell in love with its luminosity, and it is now the main body of my work.
Through my art and words, be they my own poetry or bible verse, or sayings, I love to "speak" for others, or capture a memory in a painting or sketch.
Bringing other peoples ideas to life is what I do best, and I am often commissioned to do artwork that breaths life into someone's dreams.
If you would like something that is uniquely yours, please send me a mail and we can work together on something special that is just for you.

The very first time we asked Cindy to create a master piece for us, was of our four-legged baby.
Helen was so chuffed with the master piece of her “Treat Seeking Missile – Bella”
Losing a loved one is never easy, my lovely wife and mother to our two boys lost her battle against
cancer in 2020.
We decided that we would like to say thank you to all the family and friends that supported us during the
4-year long battle, in the form of a “Thank You” card. Now that the idea was in my mind the next step
was, who do I ask, to do this for me. Well, it did not take long to get the answer, who else than “Cindy D”
will it be. The first batch of cards was not to Cindy’s standard and she had the cards reprinted at her
own cost. Even with short delay the final approved cards arrived on time as promised, packaged to a
After a while I decided I wanted a photo of Helen and her favourite bible verse printed on canvas.
Needless to say, Cindy was commissioned with this and the result was absolutely “Amazing”. Thank you,
Cindy, for creating this lifelong memorial for me.
