Recent Work by Cyndy Manke
My aim as an artist is to create beauty. Beauty helps create a cross cultural calm. Beauty universally soothes the soul.
After careers in fashion merchandising and interior design in the United States life took me to South East Asia where I lived and traveled importing fashion accessories, home furnishings and fine art. I owned and operated an art gallery in Singapore which specialized in paintings from Vietnam, Laos, Burma, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
I create works in paint, collage, and assemblage. My media is mixed. Different inspirations require different materials to bring them into the world. I prefer to work with found materials.
I live between Maryland, Connecticut and Maine with my husband David.
My works are included in collections in New England, California, Maryland, Virginia, Florida, Washington D.C., Singapore and Thailand.
