Cindy Ann Coldiron is a Kentucky native whose grandmother, Bertha Stafford, instilled in her a love of creating things at an early age. An avid gardener since the age of eight, she never met a flower she did not appreciate. As a master gardener, she fills her townhouse garden with many flowers. Her flower garden was featured in the Washington Post Home Section in 2007 where she was quoted as saying “one can never have too many flowers.” Although she is a professional recycled glass artist, Cindy has been photographing flowers since she was a child and received her Polaroid instant camera in the 1970s. This is her second art book for Schiffer Publishing. Her first book was released in October 2011 and was titled “Sculpture and Design with Recycled Glass.”
