Originally from the Florida Gulf Coast, Cynthia has lived and worked in New York and abroad in both Italy and Spain. Her work has been featured in prizes and publications and exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami as well as galleries and cultural centers in Europe including Florence, Venice, Rome, Madrid, and Barcelona.
Working in series, she alternates between abstract paintings and text-based works on paper. She harnesses the same sources of inspiration for both – language and memory – and achieves an overall aesthetic signature marked by strong senses of mood, poetry, and atmosphere.
Cynthia studied Painting at Accademia d’Arte in Florence, Italy and has completed projects at residencies throughout Italy and Spain, as well as seminars at New York Studio School, National Academy School of Fine Art, and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. In addition to studio training, she completed a program in Modern Art, Connoisseurship & Art Markets at Christie's Education New York and holds a Master's degree with a concentration in Modern Arts & Literature from University of South Florida. She divides her time between the US and extended periods in Barcelona.
