  • C.L> it is a pleasure to see your smiling face in our membership. Keep up your great art and we will see you down the road--Aloha, Nels Johnson
  • Thank you so much, Cynthia, for joining my new venture. I really have high hopes that it can fulfill important networking needs among artists and hope it will be an important economic force in the days to come.

    I just posted on my blog about a call in program on Friday where you can get answers to online marketing questions. I was so surprised about the problem with your website not being googled so I could find it. It might be worth your while to call in to the program and see if you can get an answer to this. Or, it could have just been me!
  • Cunningham mixed media drawing involves the intricate layering and mixing of 28 different materials, including graphite, colored pencil, watercolor, pastel, india ink, gouache, iridescent pastel, crushhed and pulverized glass, acrylic polymer, Golden gel medium, charcoal, metallic powders, iridescent interference medium, high gloss and mat acrylic fixative, conte crayon, metallic gouache, titanium dioxide coated mica, and school chalk applied to handmade watercolor paper. The deep experience with and intense attention to the nature of these materials assures both the permanence and the purity of her work. Self taught, Cunningham considers this effort, plus an ongoing study of art history, the most valuable training available in addition to countless hours of actual work. She describes such discipline as "...the clarity of experience."

    Cunnngham juxtaposes realism with the intimate and emotional cues of the surreal. Images are rendered directly from dreams and the vagaries of everyday life. The subjects of her dream work are particularly very period specific. This insight generates an extraordinary exchange of passion between the viewer and art. It also contributes to the enormous mystery of her work.

    These unusual pieces are highly prized in museum, private and corporate collections world wide, as well as heavily awarded in major American exhibitions. Cunningham prefers to deal with her collectors personally and for this reason is not represented by galleries or dealers.

    When asked what is her proudest achievement, the artist's answer is immediate; "Most of my collectors own at least two pieces, usually more. To me this is the highest honor any artist can receive beyond the satisfaction that comes from accomplishing the work itself. It indicates the collector has formed more than just an appreciation for the subject of a particular work. It means a connection to the spirit of the work as a whole has taken place. In my world, there is no finer thing."
