Cynthia MacCollum, ‘Charmed’, 2018, Elisa Contemporary

According to Connecticut painter and printmaker, Cynthia MacCollum, "I find inspiration in fragments of nature held close for reflection. I employ a personal vocabulary of fluid marks and organic imagery to express the sensual pleasure and ephemeral quality of the natural world. Within this realm, my work varies from representational to abstract, and I am continuously moving along the continuum between the two."

Her work has been exhibited throughout the world since 2010. She received her BA from Washington University in St. Louis and continued her art education at Fashion Institute of Technology (NY), Santa Reparata International School of Art (Florence, Italy) and
Center for Contemporary Printmaking (Norwalk, CT). Her studio is located in New Canaan, CT.
