Nancy and Cindy are dedicated to making sure you have a great experience at Art Lounge with a lasting feeling that you take home with you! Please share your thoughts and wishes so we can THRIVE and enrich the local arts community!
Cindy’s artistic recognition is centered in her passion and work around creativity and promoting local artists. A friend identified her artistic talent in the world of “ideas” and coined the phrase "ideator". Since Cindy was a child she was always visualizing business ideas and designing imaginary concepts. Finally, in 2007 she realized her dream when she and her friend, Paige Perkins opened Art n Soul on 101—an Encinitas community-based artisans gallery featuring a myriad of local artists. The mission was to promote unique, original art and donate a portion of the proceeds to local charities. The idea for Art Lounge on 101 emerged from many, many customers requesting art classes.
An ah-ha moment occurred when Nancy and Cindy magically met around the corner from what is now Art Lounge on 101. Nancy, an amazing artist and graphic designer along with Cindy, a passionate gallery owner embraced the idea of opening a cool-vibe Encinitas art teaching studio. The rest is history!!! They blended their love of art, creating, teaching and community!!! So, as this “spot" was the origin of magic between Cindy and Nancy they promise the ‘magic" of art and creativity will be felt by all at Art Lounge on 101.
