Hey hey! Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m Cynthia. I do a whole bunch of different stuff, as do most creative people these days. You might have found me from one of my various “things”- graphic design, sewing, quilting, painting, creating swear-y art, designing fabric, creating sewing patterns, or…? At any rate, I’m so glad you’re here!

I’ve been creating since I was very young.  Art is my life and I could keep myself busy for years with all the creative stuff I want to do. Years!
As a teen, I wanted to become a fashion designer, but then went for graphic design and am so glad I did. I love all things design, typography, and the smell of fresh printer’s ink can’t be beat.

I’m inspired by flowers, shoes, tattoos, vintage fabrics, mid-century design, tiki culture, well-established English gardens, juicy squishy paint, nature, the beach, old movies, typography, handmade things, and diving deep into a theme to find a twist on it that is a bit off the beaten path. You’ll probably notice a crossover of themes, methods, and media in my work, they all intertwine.

Digitally- the big 3: Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, plus my new fave on my iPad, Procreate!
By Hand- pencil, paper, canvas, paint, fabric, glitter, sequins….

  1. I’m not a summer person, I’m a very crabby Cancer. So much so, I made tshirt design to celebrate it!
  2. When I watch movies or tv shows, I tend to pay attention to what’s happening in the background and overall set or location more than what’s actually happening in the show.  (Try it sometime, it’s really interesting!)
  3. I’m a stickler for being on time. I hate being late, or even more, being made to be late by someone else. Nothing gets my knickers in a knot faster.
  4. I like most genres of music, depending on my mood and I’m obsessed with finding the soundtracks from fave tv shows or movies.
  5. I love scouring thrift stores for hidden treasures. I’m always on the lookout for vintage fabrics and linens that I’ll eventually turn into a quilt, or something.
  • finally write and illustrate the kids books I have floating in my head.
  • design a collection of cards + art for a big card co. (working on this one!)
  • paint a commission portrait of a celeb- Oprah call me!
  • design some super funky food, bath & body, wine or alcohol labels/packaging. I have ideas… just need the client for them!
  • create a cool line of tees for witchy folks, curvy options a must!

Hire me!
I am available for freelance design and illustration work, drop me a note and we can chat!

Well, that’s me! Right now.
And btw, I love being online and meeting cool people- find me on Instagram and say hi!

Much love,
