Perfect Ending


North Carolina artist Cynthia Wilson shares a delightful insight about her process – she might start with nature as her muse, but somewhere along the line, her paintings evolve into something more. The colors she chooses, inspired by the very subjects she paints, transform into delightful impressions and intriguing explorations of light. Some days, she captures the gentle, subdued light and soft shadows. But on other days, she beautifully brings to canvas the crisp, clear, and glowing sunlight that dances on the leaves.

Cynthia says, “Once I have an idea and begin to paint, the work takes on a life of its own. It reflects my emotions, my observations, and my experience as an artist. Lately, there has been a sense of urgency in my work, and I want to capture every moment. I feel that we are losing touch with nature and, maybe through my paintings, someone might begin to see how important it is to preserve this beautiful place we inhabit on planet earth.”

Cynthia, an Auburn University graduate with a BFA in Visual Design, spent 15 years in the advertising sector as an art director, illustrator, and graphic designer. Eventually, she transitioned to painting full-time after numerous career shifts. Upon relocating to the Northeast, she established herself as a reputable artist, earning selection for multiple New York City art exhibits and gaining membership in the New England Watercolor Society and the National Association of Painters in Casein and Acrylic. A landmark moment in her career was when her artwork was chosen for the National Academy of Design’s yearly show, leading to participation in traveling exhibits and solo show invitations.

In 2018, Pardee Cancer Center in Hendersonville purchased three of Cynthia’s paintings, which was extremely meaningful to her as a cancer survivor. Cynthia’s work has been displayed at various reputable institutions, including Fairfield University, Georgia Tech, the Housatonic Museum of Art, and Wachovia Bank, among others. The wide recognition of her artistic prowess is noteworthy.
