Born in Philadelphia, Cindy Press currently lives in White Plains, New York. After obtaining a BFA in Fashion Illustration from Moore College Of Art And Design in Philadelphia she moved to New York City and launched a career as a designer in the fashion industry. This culminated in an opportunity to work for and with the artist Peter Max. It was while working for Peter that Press rediscovered her true love for painting. In 1991 she moved to the suburbs of New York and started a family. Cindy maintained a career as a freelance artist in the fashion industry while simultaneously following her passion for painting as a portrait artist. During this time she was commissioned for paintings, murals and one of a kind, hand painted furniture. Since her return to painting full time, private and public collectors around the world have collected her work. To view Cindy's work visit her website www.cindypress.com.
