Cindy Lesperance works out of her private studio in the north western suburbs of Chicago. Her art has been exhibited and earned awards throughout the Chicagoland area and across the country. Her art is displayed in private and public collections and is on view as part of the permanent collection of the Encaustic Art Institute, Sante Fe, New Mexico. Although self-taught, Cindy has evolved a personal style that is highly sophisticated and meticulous. Color, pattern, and texture are her inspiration. Her process involves applying minute “droplets” of wax, one-by-one, to produce a tactile pattern that invites the viewer to touch.
At times I plan out a painting in it’s entirety before it is begun but more often I work intuitively applying minute “droplets” of wax, one-by-one, to produce a tactile pattern that invites the viewer to touch. My geometric works combine pattern and color that are reminiscent of nature, oriental rugs and fabrics. Sometimes this process is effortless and meditative – sometimes challenging and slow, but I’m always fascinated by it.
