Cindy Jenkins is a self-taught artist and photographer in Fernandina Beach, Florida, who explores the transformative elements of light and color in both mediums. While much of her favorite subject matter focuses on the incredible beauty found in the local North Florida and South Georgia communities, her work also reflects the diversity in culture and geography observed in travels throughout the world.
The artist seeks to capture an element of surprise in her photography, arresting the movement of the water and sky through slow exposure technique for an impactful image, for example, or showcasing the effect of changing light on the colors in a scene.
Cynthia works in a variety of two-dimensional painting mediums, including oil, watercolor, and pastel painting, in a contemporary impressionistic style. The artist is also fond of a variety of subjects, from landscapes and still life compositions, to scenes of people and animals engaged in daily activities.
With an education and career in banking finance, painting and photography were largely avocations for the artist until recently moving to Florida from Atlanta, Georgia. She now divides her time between the two artistic disciplines, enjoying how they influence and inspire each other and evolve the nature of her work.
