Cynthia was born in NYC but spent most of her childhood in France, where she learned to draw les pigeons et les baguettes. She graduated from Princeton with a degree in Comparative Literature and then worked for lots of art galleries and museums.  But mostly she liked to draw pictures.  She drew all the time, anywhere, on the subway, in line for movies, under her desk at work, scribbling on post- its, little day dreams in line.

Eventually the drawings found their way into newspapers and magazines, advertising/marketing materials, a children’s book, a line of stationery, and now a book of Haikus for the Single Girl, by Beth Griffenhagen, published by Penguin Books (Oct. 2011)

Cynthia lives with her husband and two children in Ridgefield, Connecticut, where she draws like mad at the kitchen table.
