Cindy Shamp

Cindy Shamp started painting in 1989 out of a need to do something for herself. Choosing to be a stay-at-home mom, she found that she could be available to her two daughters and still paint little things to sell at small art and craft shows. She began by painting on wood items cut out by her husband then later developed a way to paint on metal. In 1998 with the encouragement of her husband she began to paint on paper. Now, primarily using acrylic paints on watercolor paper, Shamp loves painting houses, trees, angels and anything that reflects her love for her country. She has also painted such things as whimsical cats and roosters, juvenile bugs and flowers and even lodge designs. She isn’t afraid to try something new and embraces the challenge. “Inspiration from my paintings come to me in different forms, from the simplest shape, scripture that grips my heart, or the natural beauty around our home in Tennessee. Being married to a military man for over 25 years has shown me what Love of Country is all about and has influenced my paintings greatly. My husband and two daughters are very supportive and great inspiration for my work.”
