Cindy Lass Needle Point

Cindy Lass burst onto the art scene more than 20 years ago when she was invited to contribute to an exhibition at the Ebury Street Gallery on the strength of her first painting - a vase of flowers for her mother. The exuberant colours and high voltage energy apparent in her work soon attracted the attention of other gallery owners. The work of the late Beryl Cook, with whom she shares many parallels, has been a true inspiration. While neither had any formal art training, they both share an enviable ability to paint direct from the heart. Art from the Heart: The late Professor Stan Smith, who nominated Cindy to join the Chelsea Arts Club, recognised the integrity in her work and the completeness of her own style, advising her never to take an art class. Instead she has spent the last two decades producing wonderfully joyful canvases in acrylic and watercolour that make people smile. Her renowned work includes The Queen's Corgi's and her Celebrity Pawtrait's, which inspired by the loss of her beloved dog, Cookie, Cindy approached famous dog owners both in the UK and US and painted portraits of their pets for charities including Battersea Dogs Home and DOGNY which was set up after the events of 9/11 to help homeless and owner-less dogs. Cindy Lass' All Our Hearts Beat As One project was born of a passion to raise our awareness and vibration by taking us back into our hearts through colour and joy and allow people to connect in this way. What began as a simple idea - to connect a handful of people, evolved into a truly unique event. Taking place in October 2016 a wealth of well-known face including Zandra Rhodes, Bill Wyman, Michelle Collins, Trudi Styler, Millie Macintosh and Hugo Taylor, Olympic boxer Joe Joyce, and many more came together and put their Hearts on Canvas by supporting Cindy Lass' unique art exhibition.
