Strange Horizons Gallery Presents...

The Art and Illustration of Cynthia Rudzis

I honestly can't remember which fascination came first . . . the one for fantastic literature or the one for creating images inspired by the stories I read. In any case, it was the beginning of a lifelong pursuit of creating art that attempted to capture a sliver of worlds unseen, spirit guides, magical beings and monsters from pages of countless books. Nature, magic, and the mystical are the driving forces behind my art. Wonderfully written stories always provide fuel for the fire.

In growing and developing as an artist, I've been fortunate enough to work with publishers who appreciate my almost "chameleon-like" styles. I adore vastly different works of art and their methods of execution and strive to keep my own works from becoming homogenous. I strive to achieve an ever-changing body of work by switching between mediums (although my favorites are acrylic paint, graphite and the always wonderful and unpredictable digital!) and methods of execution. My main focus is to depict the beauty of the otherworldly in many forms.

After receiving my BFA from Roger Williams University, I began working as an illustrator and art director for various publishers in the Baltimore/Annapolis area. As of April, I began pursuing a career as a freelance illustrator, designer and fine artist. Again, fortune has smiled as I'm enjoying a trickle of work from a large audiobook publisher and preparing to show a series of paintings titled "The Elemental Ceilidh". I've even painted a pet or two. . . .

Now . . . if I could only learn to publish a decent Web site . . . that would be magic!
