Cyndy Clauss has been interested in color and fibers since childhood. She started creating garments as a preteen and has explored weaving and quilting as well as garment construction. Surface design, which includes hand-dyeing, stenciling, burning, chemical color discharge, stamping and painting, gives her almost endless ways to express her fascination with color and texture. Cyndy creates wearables, (scarves, socks, and garments), two dimensional wall art (collage and art quilts), and three dimensional sculptural objects (felt and silk fusion). Her work has been purchased by Ivy Tech for its permanent collection, leased by Purdue University, exhibited at the Indianapolis Art Center, and at the Dittmar Gallery at Northwestern University among others.
