Cindy James lives in Edmonton, Alberta, and has worked as a court reporter and television closed captioner since 1992.

 In 2010 Cindy participated in an encaustic painting workshop and fell in love with the vibrant colour and versatility of the medium.She has learned her craft through various encaustic workshops both online and through travel to the United States. As her encaustic studio has expanded in size and scope, so has her understanding and appreciation of encaustic painting and the numerous opportunities for discovery that the medium affords inquisitive artists. Cindy continues to focus on the exploration of the ancient medium of encaustic wax and all that it offer


Encaustic medium is a perfect fit for my inquisitive nature and my passion for learning. I am as enamouredwiththeglassysmoothsurfacesasIam with the textural capabilities of wax, and the ability to transform a painting into something sculptural is a constant source of wonder and delight.

I am most drawn to emotive, sparse, surreal landscapes and images that speak of silence, space, of being alone but not lonely, images where I can expose the joy of small things to be found in a melancholysubject.

I often use my original photography in my work, and I continue to explore the versatility of encaustic painting and the near limitless potential that the medium offers through mixed media.
