A Graphic Designer for BT at Martlesham, Ipswich and married in 1992, James Ryan Speer and under the name Cyndi Speer now paints full-time. She now concentrates on the fine art aspect of her career and her paintings, usually oils onto canvas, have historical significance or have developed from the observation of the natural history that are part of her surroundings in Suffolk. From initial inspiration, swirls of patterns and contrasting tones are built up to create an overall slightly abstracted but enduring image. Her work is of a highly illustrative nature, painting local images with her own sense of perspective through to painting images from different cultures. She has exhibited with Suffolk Open Studios at Blackthorpe Barn and the Autumn Exhibition at Stratford St Andrew. Cyndi also exhibits at Buckenham Galleries, Southwold; Kesgrave Arts; Edmund Gallery, Bury St Edmund's; The Workshop on the Quay, Snape Maltings and other East Anglian art venues.
