Cynthia Decker Artist Interview

Artist Cynthia Decker was our September 2014 Featured Artist. She is the first artist to have won our online Featured Artist Contest, and the first artist I have ever formally interviewed in depth. As a long time admirer of her work, I was humbled, excited and slightly nervous about conducting the interview and learned she felt exactly the same, so that was comforting!

This happened to be a particularly long and lively conversation, packed with insights on her life’s work, artistic process, and life as a working artist. Like many artists, Cynthia creates by first exploring her ideas on paper. Unlike most artists, she then renders her images on a computer screen in 3D, and eventually flattens them to become art that can be printed on paper. She describes her work as “imaginary realism” as she creates beautiful, fantasy type creatures in remote places far from where humans could touch. View her gallery  and enjoy the conversation.
