Cindy DeBold

Cindy Debold decided she wanted to be an artist when she was eight. In college she majored in Art and continued with two additional years at Art Center College of Design. Debold began her sculpture career soon after she moved to the Austin, TX area over 25 years ago. Her first three dimensional work was an abstract figurative piece called Anima/Animus. It was inspired by petroglyphs she had seen in New Mexico and the book 'Man and His Symbols' by Carl Jung. "I was and still am captivated by the emotion and strength that can be expressed using minimal jesters and design," Debold says.

Debold also likes using a variety of materials in her work and has several series in each of her favorites mediums which include clay, bronze, stainless steel and painted wood branches combined with multiple small canvases. She has both abstract and realistic work in private and public collections, including sculptures gardens and even a bronze bust of Martin Luther King in the White House collection in Washington DC. 

Debold's work has been featured in Southwest Art Magazine, American Art Collector and the Austin American Statesman. Her most recent awards include:  The Round Rock Imagine Show, First Place in 3D - 2014, The Round Rock Imagine Show, First Place in 3D - 2013 and The Texas Society of Sculptors Georgetown Show - Best Bronze Sculpture - 2011.

Debold's 'Joy' was first made in clay, after much encouragement to make this series larger, Debold decided on using stainless steel. "I love how the texture created in stainless steel has a a holographic effect, that changes as the viewer moves by it." 

Cindy Debold lives in Lago Vista with her husband Gary Winston. They have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. In her spare time Debold enjoys walking along Lake Travis with friends in the early morning, going to yoga class and working in the yard.
