Cindy House

Name: Cindy House
Bio: Cindy House, born in Rhode Island in 1952, grew up in the coastal town of Bristol along Mt. Hope Bay. From the time she could first walk, she followed her mother, a natural history teacher and photographer, into the woods, fields, and along the shorelines to observe nature. She first developed an interest in wildlife art during high school while working at a local bird sanctuary. She chose to study wildlife biology, however, rather than art, while at the University of Maine. It was during her final year that the urge to express herself creatively became overwhelming and she took on an assignment to design, write and illustrate a small handbook on wildlife for the Boy Scouts of America. It was this handbook that prompted initial interest in her work.
Publications: Without formal training, Cindy began her career by illustrating A Guide to the Birds of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. She has illustrated numerous books including the National Geographic Society's Guide to the Birds of North America, Book of North American Birds for the Reader's Digest Association, and A Field Guide to Warblers in the Peterson Field Guide Series. She is a member of the Society of Animal Artists. the Pastel Society of America and Artists for Conservation.
