Cindy was raised by her grandmother, who had a very successful business boarding, training & breeding dogs. Cindy drew on this experience during her working life, training security dogs in Barbados, and later as a dog warden in the UK. Her childhood hobby of making pipe-cleaner dogs, and her talent for art and crafts, became the basis of her creative work today. Serious illness and sepsis was to be the start of Cindy's needle felting journey: needing something to occupy her during a slow recovery, self-taught Cindy has become world class in this addictive craft, naturally specialising in breeds of dog.
