After retiring in August 2017, Cindy took her first stained glass class in April 2018 and by June 2019, her work was exhibited at the City of Round Rock Texas Library. From that showing, Cindy received her first commission to repair a piece that would become part of a new Airbnb called Annabella’s Studio in Round Rock, Texas. The client wanted to honor the memory of her friend, Charlie, the original artist.

Cindy has continued to create panels to honor the memories of loved ones including her mother, who died from cancer in 1959 when Cindy was only three and a half years old.  With the help of other stained-glass artists who created patterns of her mom’s paintings, Cindy was able to create a stained-glass panel for each of her mom’s paintings, including this one Zinnia’s in A Vase.

In 2019, Cindy was approached by the Publisher of Glass Patterns Quarterly to write and fabricate instructional articles. She has been writing for them for 4 years now and has made the cover four times.

In 2020, while the world was going through Covid-19, Cindy was diagnosed with breast cancer stage 2, Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. During her chemotherapy treatment, surgery and later radiation, Cindy continued to work with stained glass as it helped her to keep a cheerful outlook.

In most of Cindy’s creations, she incorporates a piece of glass that is either hard to find or has been discontinued. Each piece can take anywhere from 4 hours to 4 weeks to complete. For more of Cindy’s work, visit
