Collection: Cynthia Uden


1. What do you do when you’re not making art? (Day job etc...).

When I am not creating art I sometimes go to galleries, art festivals and local art club meetings… when it is warm I like to garden; I work part time.

2. Why do you make art?

Art is a challenge for me… try to keep improving; also try to rotate my mediums; oils, acrylics and watercolors... I try to use a variety of subject matter.

3. What inspires you?

Painting should convey a mood or idea; I try to use perspective and depth in works.

4. What/who are your influences?

Have studied art and been to art school; seen works in large galleries…

5. If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?

I collect some Japanese wood cuts; would like to meet Marc Chagall.
