In 2014, during a trip to Scottsdale, Arizona Cynthia became mesmerized with Native American folklore. She was inspired by the way they preserved their heritage through artwork. Soon after returning home, she felt compelled to create art that would pay homage to her West African ancestors. Cynthia describes her beadwork as Fine Art. Her journey began one bead at a time, dropping them and picking them up.
Creating patterns and designs, discovering mysterious colors and shapes, even before she knew or understood the countries of origin which often led back to her Igbo ancestors. Andrew Hollimon and I are collaborating for upcoming art exhibits, this opportunity will allow us to work in close proximity.
