Permission to Be You #8: Breaking Tribal Rules Part 1

May 9, 2016 by Craig Hewitt − 1 Comments

Today is a very special day because we are talking to Charlie’s wonderful long-time friend, Cynthia Sitton. Cynthia belongs to a special tribe of artists, but she’s changing the rules as we speak. She’s a very famous painter, and is actually considered one of the best representational artists in Southern California.

First of all, she’s breaking the rules through her representational painting. And now, she’s adapting representational art and putting her own spin on it. Talk about someone who gives herself permission to be authentic!

Today’s topics include:

  • How Cynthia began with narrative art
  • Getting rid of the voices in your head
  • How to discover your true form of expression
  • Allowing yourself to go against the rules
  • How she found her voice as an artist

Cynthia currently works and lives in Southern California. She received her MFA in drawing and painting from the Laguna College of Art and Design in 2015. Working as a figurative realist painter, Cynthia explores emotional and psychological narrative themes that are part autobiographical mixed with myth and or fantasy.  Be sure to check out Cynthia’s website, where you can see the progression of her art.

Catch Charlie and Terry on their websites, Terry Hershey and Right Things with any comments, questions, or even just to say hello; they’re always happy to respond. Until next time, continue to stay authentic!
