Cyndi Gusler is Professor of Art at Eastern Mennonite University where she has been teaching for 12 years. She earned her PreK-8 teaching certification at EMU followed by a Master of Fine Art in Painting and Drawing from James Madison University. Much of the current art work that occupies Cyndi’s mind and hands is ephemeral in nature. Pulling substances such as used coffee grounds from the waste stream and re-appropriating them as drawing mediums. Cyndi is a mother of two, an avid gardener, an around the town cyclist, and an oil painter.
