Cindy Shih is a painter who daydreams about how Art can affect real, positive change within a community. Cindy Shih is a representational artist living and working in San Francisco.

Most notably, at Arc Gallery and Studios in SoMa, Sanchez Art Center, SoMarts Main Gallery, Seed Gallery, Embassy SF, and Studio 110 Projects.
