Artist Statement

Cyndi Wiebe is a rural Canadian artist, illustrator, art teacher, and graphic designer. Inspired by adventures raising her children under endless prairie skies, she uses child-like whimsy, bold colours, flowing movement, and unique perspectives to saturate her illustrations. Cyndi studied Graphic Design at Red River College in Winnipeg and now runs Small Creek Studio out of her home near Niverville, Manitoba. In addition to her art and design work, she loves to teach and explore art with her students in Winnipeg and Southern Manitoba.

Space for Adventure illustrates the journey of a girl and her stuffed cow from their safe, warm bed to the very edges of space. I seek to bring viewers of all ages on an adventure of playful imagination. Only with the mind of a child can we explore space, barefoot and wild, for no other purpose than to interrupt the normalcy of everyday life.

Studio Tour and Artistic Questionnaire

Can you describe your daily/weekly art practice?

I currently have a couple of evenings per week set aside for in-studio work. This may be illustration, painting, design work on the computer or any combination of those, depending on what I am working on at the time! 

What is your favourite part about your studio?

My favourite part of my tiny studio is its flexibility. The walls are basically shelves lined with nearly every kind of supply I may need or want. This makes it easy to prep for teaching classes as well, because I can grab a few bins and I’m ready to go.

What are your creative goals?

In the next few years, I am hoping to dedicate more time to developing my own artistic voice. Generally, I have just done work for clients or events. With the Molly project, I’ve spent more time than I have ever allowed myself working on something that is all my own.

Delightful, thoughtful series! Wonderful use of colour for texture and depth, the whole of each picture feels very free.

Love it Cyndi! Walt Disney said, "Imagination is greater than Knowledge." I tend to agree. I hope your book inspires many to take an adventure through great stories!
