A local artist who graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi. Originally from Dallas, Cynthia has made her home in Corpus since 1992 and was one of the founding members of K Space Contemporary studios. She has been a community art educator in the community for over 15 years and works in the mental health field. She has instructed at grant-funded programs and has facilitated art outreach for The Art Museum of South Texas, The Art Center of Corpus Christi and K Space Contemporary. She teaches different mediums including collage, mixed media, painting, drawing, retablos and art jewelry. The co-creator of the grant “Creating Hope with Art” with K Space Contemporary and Esperanza De Tejas in 2021, she curated a community art show as a part of the grant. Currently her body of work include the pieces, “Love Letters to My King” and “Just One Miracle”. This work deals with processing trauma with art. In this journey of healing, Cynthia has found a visual vocabulary of recurrent themes that have personal power. Cynthia participated in The Writer’s Studio zoom poetry classes and learned valuable tools like ekphrastic poetry and word collage. These skills are new and have influenced her visual creative style.
All 2021 events will be held ONLINE.
