Carstens Fine Art is an artist-owned gallery and working studio representing almost exclusively the work of Cyndy Carstens. Most days you will find Carstens creating new paintings in the studio space of her gallery.
Her work is markedly vibrant, vivid and yet quietly subtle. Painting the “color of light” as reflected in the skies, mountains, lakes and deserts of the Southwest, each work observes special attention to detail and movement, composition and emotion.
A professional artist for more than 40 years, Cyndy Carstens’ work can be found in private and corporate collections across the U.S, Canada and as far away as Australia.
Carstens’ oil paintings emanate life with calm harmonies for home, office, hospitality and/or medical environments. Ranging in size from miniature to large-scale, the original oil paintings are offered at a variety of prices to fit every collector’s budget. Carstens’ paintings are in private collections across America, Canada, Europe & Australia, and in corporate collections of Intel Corporation and Banner Alzheimer’s Institute & Consortium, among others. She has also been featured in newspaper and magazine articles over the years, including Southwest Art, American Art Collector, Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine, and The Arizona Republic.
