Cindy Hoose is an artist, designer and crafter, who has exhibited and sold her work throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond. She studied studio art at SUNY New Paltz and received a B.A. in Fine Art from Empire State College. Prior to coming on staff in 2007, Cindy held a variety of jobs in the restaurant business, worked for a web design company, and owned and operated a vintage clothing and antique shop. Cindy enjoys working at HVSS because it is the only place she has found where children share equality with adults. While at school she can be found sewing in the art room, cooking in the kitchen, playing games, debating in School Meeting and cleaning up at the end of the day.
