Cindy McIntyre moved from Tacoma, Washington to Maine in 1993, beginning a new chapter in her life. She fell in love with the region's beauty and village atmosphere, and found renewal of her art amid the expressive moods of mid-coast Maine.  In 2004 she began traveling South to do art shows, and exhibited at the Bayou City Art Show in Houston, Deep Ellum in Dallas, and Magic City Art Connection in Birmingham, Alabama in 2008.  In 2009 she got a winter job working for the National Park Service at Big Bend National Park, Texas, and wondered why she hadn't thought of it sooner. She returned to Big Bend the following winter, then worked in summer 2011 at Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. The journey has now taken her to a great job in Atlanta, Georgia interpreting the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.
