Cyndee began her career as an animator at Disney Feature Animation where she worked on feature films including The Little Mermaid. While at Disney, Cyndee was sent to numerous global destinations to recruit artists for regional offices. She was greatly influenced by the colors, textures, scents, and sounds of each culture. She draws on those experiences to tell stories with her jewelry using found objects and images of mythical characters. Her feather pieces celebrate the beauty, endurance, and fragility of birds, and her character pieces represent an imagined adornment of another era.
