Cindy Bouwers


Cindy was born in Picture Butte, Alberta
and spent her childhood enjoying wide Alberta skies,
with ample time for exploring the outdoors.


Cindy earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Communication Design from the University of Alberta in 1984. She went on to enjoy a successful career as a graphic designer, working first for the University of Alberta and then, after moving to Calgary in 1989, for KARO Design Resources.


Cindy started Quest Design in 1998 and also taught Visual Communication Design as a sessional instructor for the Alberta College of Art and Design from 2000 to 2004.


A decision in 2006 to begin exploring a long buried desire to paint and pursue her own artwork has led her along a new creative path, and resulted in a rich body of work informed by her design background, strong sense of composition and love of nature.


Cindy has focused primarily on interpreting the natural world while reflecting on the spaces “in between” and working toward conveying a sense of that which is unseen.
