Artist Statement

Cynthia has worked as a professional artist in Owen Sound since graduating with a BFA from University of Western Ontario in 1999 and has been actively involved in arts and culture in this community. The process for her collage and mixed media paintings involves an intuitive and spontaneous approach building up layers and texture, working and re-working the surface until the image satisfies her. This unique work in bold colours is primarily abstract with shapes and symbols that suggest a physical and spiritual journey. Cynthia’s work has been shown in many regional exhibitions and in New Zealand and Scandinavia and is in private and corporate collections. Her post and beam studio was built by Thistlewood Timber Frame and is nestled amongst maple trees and beside a valley at the back of her property. Come and enjoy her work and studio and be inspired.
