Cynthia speaks of a journey home to your authentic self, who you signed up to become when you landed here. Who are you before you and your ancestral families bought into the conditioning of colonization?
Every work of art has a story to tell. It is rooted in the stories of the artist who made it. Once you invite it into your home, Cynthia's stories and intentions for resilience becomes a part of your life and your stories are folded in. Art can be the painting over your couch or the sculpture in your garden. It can also be your coffee cup, your favorite outfit to wear, a bag you carry or a pillow to hug. These become imbued with your intentions for a life filled with resilience, calm, moments of delight and fortitude. Standing up can be scary. Gather physical reminders to stay in your heart, protected or insulated from those concepts and emotions that are not yours.
Setting their Stories Free. When these objects are created from Cynthia's heart space, they are stunning to behold and a joy to live with.
"I use color, shape, expression and symbols to instill emotions of strength and resolve. As a woman of color working in the community, using art to effect change, I am always struck by the need to uplift and ignite both the collective imagination of possibilities and indignation of colonized thinking.
