Cynthia Minoli is a Northern California artist that is inspired by the grandeur of God’s artistic design. Observing the world through the lens of fabric, her work begins with her photography and is created solely with fabric and thread. She has always been drawn to the textural feeling of fabric in the hand, and the way colors can soothe and sway your mood.
Her aim is to create vibrant art that is joyful and brightens up your favorite room.
While raising her children, she spent time learning principles of art and enjoyed artistic creativity.
In 2020, after 22 years of homeschooling her children, she embarked on a career as a full-time artist.
Her work has been in the California Heritage Museum, The Scarab Creative Arts Gallery, The Sanchez Art Gallery, and is also in private collections from the Virgin Islands to Hawaii and the Mid-West.
Traveling to Carmel-by-the-Sea, Lake Tahoe, and Yosemite with her husband are often the source of her inspirations. Her richly textured landscapes are achieved by cutting and layering thousands of pieces of fabric which are then stitched together illustrating depth and movement. This multi-layered surface draws the viewer in close to observe the texture then encourages you to step back and take in the overall scene.
