I found Cynthia on The Alcove's website, a gallery located in Georgia. Her subjects possess such frivolity and self involvement. I can't help but laugh, while being reminded of absurdities in day to day life.
"Cynthia Tollefsrud was born in California, raised in the Midwest and came to live in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1991. She is a self-made artist. Her artistic desires were realized when her parents gave her a John Gnagy Drawing Set on her tenth birthday. With charcoal smudged hands, she learned the basics of drawing. Art classes throughout her school years were always a requirement."
