Cindy English Gillis is an artist with a multitude of unique layers of artistic and business experience. She painted watercolor paintings for 25 years, showing in galleries and winning awards. These paintings were sold to delighted patrons around the world.
During this time she also worked part time for an Orthodontist. Cindy holds a bachelor degree in interior design and managed successfully, an architectural firm for thirteen years.
About eighteen years ago while running and training for marathons on the beaches of Southern California, one of her running partners kept stopping and picking up sea glass. This was new to her, and it took a while until she started picking up her own pieces of sea glass.
This was the beginning of a new journey that ultimately led her to designing jewelry with the treasures she found along the way. Ironically, the years working for the Orthodontist, bending wires, soldering and using the same tools used in Jewelry design along with the years designing her watercolors, interior design, and business experience have led to the start of her new adventure, Reawakened Treasure.
The joy she finds in nature and design can be found in her unique works of art.
