Cyndee Starr

She Who Doodles by Folt Bolt

I’m Cyndee Starr, actually Cynthia Eloise Starr, born and raised in Portland, OR USA, now living across the Columbia River in Vancouver, WA.

I am a mixed media artist and obsessive doodler. I no longer feel the need to do as I’m told, stay in the lines, be the proper person, mother, wife, daughter I was taught to be.

My art allows me inner peace to silence all those voices that control my life.

My art has no controls. It all comes together as I feel it.

For me there is no art form I won’t try, at least once.Doodling started as a need for a creative outlet during the week. My work and commute left me very little time to work on my collages. So I tried Zentangles, not for me. To perfect and repetitious for me so I started playing around with my own designs. After that I could not put my pen and journal down.

It went everywhere with me. I’ve lost count of how many journals I have filled with doodles. At this point I’ll doodle on anything I can find, shoes, walls, pic frames, jewel boxes, furniture, it’s a challenge to see what I can find to put my doodles on.

They are all freehand, no planning no guide lines. They go where I take them.

I use lots of recycled items these days. People are always giving me things they think I might doodle and I love perusing thrift stores and flea markets.

Lately I even tried doodling over some of my photographs. It started with a cropped flower photo, then I wondered if I could do a landscape, or maybe a structure. It’s endless.

Keep watching, you never know where my next doodle will be.

Because of a family history of Alzheimer’s disease I donate a portion of all my art sales to finding a cure. Alzheimer Association.
