About Cydnie King
I grew up with a family of artists, so it was an easy choice to go to Webster University in St. Louis, MO and graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in Studio Art in 2012. Now I live in Fairborn, Ohio with my husband and son still creating art.
What I mainly focus on are my interpretations of the human connection to nature by showing botanicals as part of the human body as well as circuits flowing through plants and natural settings. This is to emphasize that parts of humanity are very similar to parts of the natural world and that the bond between the two is still present no matter how humanity tries to sometimes distance itself. It is also my creative take on genetic modification of nature. We want our plants to grow bigger, taste better, look prettier, but how often do we stop and consider what all these technological changes are doing to the plants? Does it make them look better? Does it truly help them achieve optimum performance?
My choice of medium are watercolors, inks and soft pastel. I find that these materials blend well together, just like my unpredictable imagination that moves from one thing to the next.
