Cynthia Scott, BFA, M.Ed
Fine Artist (Collage)
I have always been a creative person, and as a child I loved to collect things. Collages are the perfect medium for me to showcase my collections. Growing up I was surrounded by artistic people and continually was engaged in art lessons.
Later, I studied at Tyler School of Art earning a BFA, which led me to a career in New York City as a Graphic Designer. After earning a graduate degree in Art education, using my K-12 certification, I began my Art teaching career in numerous schools throughout Bucks County, Pennsylvania. During this time, I dedicate all my free time to creating art in my converted barn-turned-studio.
Recycled art has been a passion for me, and I have found a continual inspiration through the work of Louise Nevelson. Using fluid acrylic white paint, my newest collection is of framed objects tied together by a theme. My favorite things about this collection of collages is watching people’s curiosity being aroused as they view the tiny details of each work, and without color as a distraction.
Currently, I am working on more collage collections including “The Beach Scavenger”, “Craft Room”, and “The Anglers Box.”
There are few things I love more than being able to share the creative process. People love to come and spend time in my studio in the barn, which has evolved into a welcoming environment for hosting children’s art camps and adult painting and craft-making sessions. My website is artinthebarn.life.
