Artist and Designer Cindy Jo has a Cherokee Indian heritage and has honored the pride of her heritage through her work as well as her life. Cindy is self taught in sculpture and mixed media and has been creating unique art work since childhood. Cindy Jo grew up close to the Shoshoe Bannock Indian Reservation and is very familiar with the Indian culture and legions.
Cindy Jo has been creating Native American style and is partial to the life of the warrior who conquers adversity with pride and honor. Cindy Jo not only admires the Indians, but feels we owe them a tremendous debt. The Indians culture has given us romance, legends, myths, as well as a history. They shaped the character of our entire nation. Their bravery, spirituality and devotion to family, tribe and the Creator are a constant inspiration to her. Cindy Jo has been said to be the “Rolls Royce” of Native American style artists and any collector who owns a piece of her art is sure to agree.
Cindy Jo carefully creates each piece totally by hand. She recreates the powerful and vivid colors of nature, as well as the most elemental materials that Mother Earth has provided for her people for years. Her lifetime research along with her own unique ideas lead her on to represent, promote, preserve, and protect a time and a people whose heritage fulfills a vast part of the circle of life.

Collectors continue to be fascinated with Cindy Jo’s unforgettable display of expression, personality and individual characters of each piece.
