About the Artist > Bio
Cynthia K. Mullins, an award-winning Connecticut painter, enjoys painting a range of subjects. Drawn to landscapes, still life and “closely cropped” florals she paints au plein air or in her studio. Her work has a blueprint of reality transmuted by her own sensibility and creative decisions. Whether painting abstractly or staying close to natural scenes, she infuses her own energy and invites the viewer to engage in their own experience.
Ms. Mullins has exhibited her work in many solo, juried and group shows in such venues as the Nylen Gallery in Westport, the Carriage Barn Arts Center Gallery in New Canaan, The Merritt Parkway Museum in Stratford, The Lockwood-Mathews Museum in Norwalk, Rockwell Gallery in Ridgefield, CT, the Gallery in the Park at Pound Ridge Reservation, NY and the Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Art Gallery in NYC. Ms. Mullins is regionally known for her Merritt Parkway series. Her paintings have sold and found homes in many U.S. states and she has won numerous awards for her oil and pastels, including an Award for Excellence, given by New York Times art critic and writer Benjamin Genocchio, at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists 31st Juried Exhibition.
Ms. Mullins’ painting roots run deep as she is the great, great granddaughter of renowned Hudson Valley River School painter Aaron Draper Shattuck. Currently, she sits on the board of the Ridgefield Guild of Artists, as Secretary and Co-Creative Director and designs and installs shows for galleries and individuals. Ms. Mullins is a juried member of the National Association of Women Artists in NYC, an artist member of The Westport Collective and The Carriage Barn Arts Center in CT and various other organizations.
