I was fortunate to grow up in a family where arts and crafts were encouraged and art supplies were abundant. Although I didn’t have much of a formal art education, my childhood has given me a spirit of joy and experimentation when creating original colored pencil pieces.
I gravitate towards bright colors and I prefer a loose style. Soft yet vibrant is how I like to describe my work. I tend to work with non-traditional colored pencil supports such as sanded surfaces, wooden panels, canvas, and drafting film. I also enjoy mixing colored pencil with other mediums such as acrylic paint, ink, pastels, and watercolor.
Besides being a member of the
CPSA San Diego Chapter and the Saddleback Art League I share my love and passion of colored pencils with with my Colored Pencils for Beginners and Beyond Facebook Group.
These are my original colored pencil pieces. All original artwork by Cecilia Kinzie. Thanks for stopping by.
