The personal is universal.

While drawing she needs to surrender herself to the fluid feelings and pigments as it appears on the surface in all its imperfections.

The work of Cindy van Woudenberg consists of drawings on paper using mixed media:  mostly ink, watercolor, and pencil.

Her main interest is transforming moments in life. In her drawings, she uses body language and recreates a posture various times to seek new layers of meaning.

She works in different series, focusing each series on only one aspect of that moment in life, such as metamorphosis or compassion. Using her drawings, she strives not to gain instant answers but to ask, explore, as well as show the questions that emerge.

Lately, she’s moving towards a more intuitive approach to her art practice.
