depicting a camel measures 9"X12". Number 4 of 10, signed on base.Cynthia Rigden grew up surrounded by horses and cattle on an 8,000-acre ranch that has been in her family since 1902. Her roots in Arizona and the West are deep. Yet, she doesn't call herself a "western artist;" rather she is an artist who comes from the West. In a 1997 profile in Farm and Ranch Living, she said, "During the course of a typical day, I might see a cow pony or a big old Longhorn doing something that makes me want to capture it in a bronze. Of course, just seeing something doesn't mean I can sit right down and sculpt it. I often have to do a lot of research to get all the details right. Details are very important. Folks who know horses and cattle will see right away if I get something wrong. So I have a room full of close-up photographs of every part of an animals anatomy, from its ears to its hoofs." Though she has been interested in painting since childhood - her grandmother's watercolors are still known in the Prescott area - her passion for sculpting waited until college. "I don't remember ever wanting to be anything but an artist," she said. At Arizona State University, the classes she wanted to take were filled so she took a course in sculpting. She has been profiled in Southwest Art, Arizona Highways, Contemporary Western Artists, and The Texas Cowboy. She was among women featured in Barbara Van Cleve's book, Hard Twist - Western Ranch Women. She was featured in an article in the May/June issue of Art of the West. She has exhibited in the American Women Artists and the West, Loveland Sculpture in the Park, and the Texas Cowboy Artists Award Show.
