My name is Cindy Compton and am glad to be a part of the Sunflower Gallery. I just recently retired from elementary teaching for 30 years. I have been an artist for many years but started wire wrapping stones a few years ago. I get my inspiration from the beauty that surrounds us and try to use as many of nature’s abundance as possible. My father was in the Navy, so I always lived by the ocean until he retired to Noxon when I was in high school. My mother is an artist and always has inspired and encouraged me in my artistic pursuits. I also started making lavender products which have many healing benefits. I offer a blend of wire wrapping semi-precious stones, gemstones, agates and lavender gifts.
