Cindy Monten art & beauty -creativity for people & places
All about Cindy......
Welcome, My name is Cindy Monten - creating beauty is both my passion and my purpose. I have always been creative, spontaneous, witty, feisty, with a wicked sense of humor, and a really soft heart. Gifts of service, is my love language and I speak it loud & proud. After traveling the world as a Master Hairdresser - working with some amazing talent, owning multiple salons and training more novices that I can count. I now enjoy working alone, where I can combine all of my heart-centered , creative work in one space.
I continue to love my craft of hair design and now focus that part of my work primarily on haircuts and color. I love how changing the shape and color can not only create beauty but can also improve a persons confidence!
Reiki is Energy Work, and after experiencing it myself, I was inspired to learn and share the positive effects of this ancient alternative healing modality. This is where my healing, nurturing "mama"energy comes in, ( I am known to many simply as "Mama Monten") My Reiki Masters Certificate was earned at the The Meta Institute and I have added chakra clearing, energy-work to my service offerings.
Creative writing has always been a source of inner peace for me. "The Birth of Wonderment" was my first book. It reads a bit like a fairy tale but is a true story, of painful experience which launched a deep personal transformation, and led me to live a creatively joyful life. A second book is in the works, so stay tuned!
I am "the idea girl " and create with a broad brush, beyond the services I have listed above to an expansive array of services including furniture restoration, interior design, blog editor and website creation. The word Alchemist is how I often describe myself because it refers to conjuring up something from nothing. Creativity is how I shine my light!
Cindy Monten~Art & Beauty is a charming home to all of my creative endeavors. From my services as a Reiki Master, to Mixed Media Artist, Hair Designer and Creative Consultant. The studio is my playroom and creativity lab! On occasion it becomes a unique space for cozy gatherings, book signings, trunk shows and workshops. I am living a charmed life- creating beauty, doing the work that I love, for people I love, in a community I love. Check out my endorsements - come see me!
Stay in the Light! Love, Cindy
Meet My Inspiration....
Meet Zoe, my muse & biggest fan, Director of Social Media and most important my daughter and my favorite human in all the universe! She is the "why" behind all I do. I hope that by bravely crafting a life that aligns with my soul, makes my heart sing and utilizes my natural talents and creates freedom and flexibility in my days- will inspire her to continue to honor the only two"rules" I have ever set down for her. 1) "follow your heart and use good wisdom in all you do" 2) "Find what makes you happiest and do a lot of that!"
