Cynthia began life enjoying the out of doors, was athletic, and
active as a sailor. It wasn’t until adulthood that she began to seek life
as an artist. While cruising the Great Lakes with her husband and two
young sons, she found painting the locations they visited to be of
interest. Her favorite subjects were architectural and nautical in nature.

Cynthia says that being an artist is “a fine balance of privilege and necessity”. One of the reasons she likes watercolor is that it is adventurous and takes courage due to the risks involved. She has lived in here in Eastport for 17 years and has been painting in watercolor for forty years. 

Cynthia has exhibited at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, Maryland Federation of Art, and the Mitchell Gallery at St. John’s College.
