Painting With Scissors
The Collage Art of Cindy Vattathil
Who Is This Artist
Cindy Vattathil, a Bohemian mother of three from Houston, Texas, has been saving scraps of paper her whole life. Little did she know they would serve as a channel for her artistic voice. Like Matisse, she has found a youthful happiness when "painting with scissors," and prefers the medium of collage to her old acrylic paints. Aside from her art, Cindy enjoys clipping coupons, pruning her shrubs and cutting the tags off of her family's clothing. Needless to say, she also owns stock in the Fiskars Corporation!
Where Have You Seen Her Work
Cindy's collage art made its picture book debut in 2019 on the pages of "How to Babysit a Logan" (written by Callie Metler-Smith, Spork Publishing). In addition to this, her work has also been showcased regularly in My Table - Houston's Dining Magazine, as well as in several other small literary publications.
Prior to collage, she also worked in the medium of acrylic paints and many of her pieces have been sold to private buyers all over the world. Prints and merchandise are available for purchase through Redbubble. For more info, check it out here.
