Known es­pe­cially for her wildlife por­traits on feath­ers, Cyn­thia loves to take a walk on the wild side of life with her un­usual and sur­real-in­spired con­cepts. “I treat my can­vases as an ad­ven­ture in space and pos­si­bil­ity. I like to take an idea, twist it, turn it and then add some­thing else.”

A grad­u­ate of Dal­housie Univer­sity and the Nova Sco­tia Col­lege of Art & De­sign, Cyn­thia be­gan ex­plor­ing cre­ative thought and ex­pres­sion on paper us­ing wa­ter­colours and, more re­cently, acrylic on slate, wood and feath­ers. She had to step back from paint­ing on feath­ers to give her eyes and neck a much-needed break. Her lob­ster se­ries has af­forded her the joy of paint­ing “big, us­ing the bright­est colours of the rain­bow.”

Cyn­thia is a mem­ber of Vis­ual Arts Nova Sco­tia as well as the An­napo­lis Re­gion Com­mu­nity Arts Coun­cil in An­napo­lis Royal, N.S. She is also an as­so­ciate mem­ber of the So­ci­ety of Cana­dian Artists (Na­tional) and the So­ci­ety of Cana­dian Painters in Wa­ter Colour. Her work has ap­peared in sev­eral shows and pub­li­ca­tions, both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional. In 2016, her “Crow painted on a crow feather” was ac­cepted into the ju­ried na­tional on­line ex­hi­bi­tion of the So­ci­ety of Cana­dian Artists. In 2017 her work “Man­ning Her Yards” was ac­cepted into “Wa­ter Re­flec­tions,” the ju­ried ex­hi­bi­tion of the Cana­dian So­ci­ety of Painters in Wa­ter Colour.
