Welcome to the Strid Creative Studio Gallery. This gallery is a collection of creative works touched by my life’s journey. Abstract and representational works are inspired by my desire to express the soul of an experience, an idea, a human being, a relationship, or a species on the planet. I strive to balance the process of close observation and growing technical excellence with expressiveness, curiosity and playfulness. There’s a lot to see in the galleries, so take your time, and visit often! New Work is on the way… For specific information, click on Current Work or Upcoming Events Cyndi Strid, Artist
