Oh to this very day I still love Cynthia with a huge chunk of my heart. I'm thankful my cousin has her (one of a few artworks actually) so I can still see her at times.

My intentions were to play on a medusa-induced character for this beauty (if that isn't obvious 🙃), again with a cartoon-type vibe. I believe I was still trying to achieve something here that I didn't feel I had with "April". Obviously it worked because I adore her still!

Now the name "Cynthia" has me baffled though... Cynthia is a feminine given name of Greek origin: Κυνθία, Kynthía, "from Mount Cynthus" on Delos island. Cynthia was originally an epithet of the Greek goddess Artemis, who according to legend was born on Mount Cynthus... and I don't believe this has anything what-so-ever to do with Medusa 🤷🏻‍♀.

Be bold, be sexy, be fierce and never look Medusa in the eye!

My art builds a body of strength and character, an empowering force, not only for myself but for each and every woman. I have learnt and grown so much over my 40+ years; The good, the bad, the ridiculous... It's all relevant. I'd really love to share some of that with you!
