Cindy Capehart is a visual artist and long time resident of Gainesville, Florida. She graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art in 1989. While she enjoys photography, drawing, printmaking and painting; painting in oils on canvas has become her primary means of expression.

Capehart has found her inspiration in the natural world. In her current work she takes a different view of the landscape by focusing closely on the subject. Capehart begins her process by photographing her subject, mostly plants and trees. She “zooms in” on her subject capturing details in the landscape. She uses photo editing software to finalize the composition, then using the photo as a reference, creates a painting in her studio. In designing such a composition based on patterns in nature Capehart is exploring the abstract qualities inherent in nature. What results is a bold and dynamic painting that evokes a sense of intimacy as well as unexpected tranquility.
