“There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.”
― John Calvin
Hello, my name is Cynthia. I am a textile artist living in the Sacramento valley.
I am continually awestruck at God’s beautiful design in nature. From the magnificence of ocean waves crashing to the intricate details of a flower petal.
I am mesmerized by the colors of a sunset, and while watching a honey bee collect nectar. I am continually reminded of the goodness of my maker.
He has given me a passion for collecting colorful, rich textiles and I use them to create art that reflects the beauty I find in nature.
I love to spend the early morning hours in the flower garden, watching hummingbirds and trimming spent blooms. This inspires me to capture snippets of time through photography, look at them close up, and create art that brings a sense of joy and calm.
Since I live so close to Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, and Yosemite, there is an endless amount creative inspiration.
Looking through the lens of a camera, I Imagine what the scene could be with textiles.
Like painting with strokes of fabric, hundreds of tiny pieces are meticulously added to a canvas and stitched together using my sewing machine to sketch details.
All of my works of art are handmade by me in my studio and are one of a kind.
