Biography

Raised in Brisbane, Cynthia is a graduate of the Queensland College of Art. She has exhibited continuously since 1980 but in earlier years spent time as a graphic designer, a principle illustrator for the University of Queensland Press, lecturer in Illustration at the School of Art University of Tasmania, and exhibition designer for the Queensland Museum, winning numerous industry awards across these disciplines.
Cynthia has been devoted full-time to her painting practice since 1991. She has held over 35 solo exhibitions around Australia, and participated in numerous group and ‘by invitation’ exhibitions around Australia, in Tokyo, and California.
In 2004 her first international solo exhibition was held in California where her work was featured on the cover of a major magazine. Cynthia is a finalist in the 2018 Salon des Refusés. She is also a 6-time finalist in the Portia Geach Memorial Award (Australia’s most prestigious award for female artists) as well as a finalist in the Mosman Art prize, the Paddington Art Prize, Tattersalls Landscape Prize, Redlands Westpac Art Prize, and the Eutick Memorial Still Life Award (EMSLA). Cynthia has been represented by Gallery One since late 2014.
