Although Cynthia Holien has always loved art and interior design, it wasn’t until she was in her middle fifties that she decided to pursue painting.  First starting out using  watercolors and then developing  a love of painting abstracts in acrylic. Cynthia’s love of color, shapes and movement are her inspirations in her artwork.  She enjoys painting in layers and blending unexpected color combinations together for an element of surprise. 

  Cynthia recently returned home to Minneapolis, Minnesota after living in South Dakota for 30 plus years. A true believer that art enhances and improves our lives, it is her wish to bring value and meaning into the viewers life.  Painting has brought Cynthia so much joy and hopes her work brings the same to her collectors.
