Illustrator Saturday – Cynthia Iannaccone

Cynthia is a traditional artist using acrylic, watercolor and gouache in her painting and illustration. She worked as a museum educator and in public schools, teaching art to children and adults. She is greatly inspired by her student’s work. Cynthia exhibits and sells her paintings in galleries and her poetry has been published in chapbooks.

 She aspires to be an author/illustrator and is currently working on several picture book manuscripts.

Cynthia loves animals and gets many story ideas from the antics of her five pets. In her spare time she enjoys horses and riding through the park.

She began her formal art training in England then transferred to Nova Scotia College of Art and Design where she lived with several friends in an old farm house near Peggy’s Cove.

At the kitchen window we could see whales spouting in the ocean, while the deer ate from the apple trees in the yard around the house. Here I also learned about the beauty of the vast sky and billowing cloud formations.

Cynthia shares studio space with her photographer husband.
