Cindy has always felt the
strong heartbeat of the land beneath her feet, and approaches her photography with a certain reverence for all living things. Her quiet way of closely observing nature from childhood to the present has resulted in a comfortable familiarity with the natural world that she photographs.
Avian photography is her main interest, where past years of field study provide her with the ability to locate species with a working knowledge of their needs and habits. Her images and nature writing have appeared in numerous magazines and natural history journals. She is a field contributor for the Michigan nature journal Whisper in the Woods and also for Nature Photographer Magazine. She recently was honored by NANPA by being selected for their 2008 showcase, which represents their top 100 juried images submitted from fellow members. She also currently serves as the photo art moderator at Nature Photographers Network, an international cooperative network of amateur and professional photographers dedicated to the art and technique of nature, wildlife and landscape photography.

Cindy resides in Northeastern Michigan with Garry, her husband and partner, and Phoebe, their German Shorthaired Pointer. Together they explore their local environs and the rich diversity of plant and animal life found there. Through imagery, they share an awareness of the boundless beauty found in the natural world -with the sincere hope that wild places and crucial habitats will be protected for future generations to enjoy.
