The Left Brain Artist

Suzanne Redmond talks with artists about their artwork, techniques, and how they’ve created a successful business. With her background in accounting, finance, and exhibiting art, she knows what it takes to get your artwork seen and sold. She’s chosen artists who are working their business – exhibiting their art, teaching others, and finding unusual opportunities. You’ll hear from some unsung artists, who are extremely talented and creative, and hopefully you’ll look up their work and be inspired by what they do. Artists really do the coolest things, and they do this while running a family, traveling, and living an art-filled life. Enjoy listening to these successful artists who are happy to share the keys to their success with you.

Artist Cyndi Lanier does nature printing, using natural materials like sea fans, sea oats, or feathers. She also makes prints using fish, which is called gyotaku. Cyndi uses inks to cover the fish and then lays paper over them to transfer the image. She also dyes papers to create a background, and will create a composition that may contain one or many images of the fish so it looks like a school. Cyndi is a member of the Nature Printing Society, and she also teaches classes near her home and elsewhere. Her prints have also been put on public art and she does commissions as well. Show notes for all of these episodes can be found on my website at
