About Cynthia

Cynthia's studio is nestled in southwestern Colorado.  Surrounded by the majestic La Plata Mountains to the north and east and the colorful high desert to the west and south. There is never a shortage of art inspiration!

The whole area is steeped in western culture, mining, and Native American and Puebloan history.  All of it tugs at her creative heartstrings.

Cynthia likes to say, "My work tells a story, be it real or imagined."  She considers herself an eclectic artist often combining different mediums and techniques within her watercolor paintings.

She shares her creativity with others teaching classes on a regular basis at local galleries, public library programs, and in private group settings.

"My work tells a story, be it real or imagined."
