ABOUT THE ARTIST
Cynthia Dvorak Grandjean is a native Texan and recently retired from the nursing
She paints almost daily in her whimsical style. Recently she has enjoyed painting smaller abstracts with line work using charcoal.
She began taking art lessons in 1983, painting as time allowed. She then took a break from her time at the easel to raise her two sons.
As the boys grew and more time opened up in her busy schedule, she heard her creative muse calling and began painting once again.
As a visual artist she paints intuitively, creating beautiful, soulful paintings in acrylic, watercolor, collage and encaustic. She paints almost daily creating abstract and impressionistic pieces but especially enjoys painting whimsical florals and assemblage. She has been entering juried shows since 2012 and has won many awards. She won an Exemplary Art Achievement award at the Lone Star Art Guild 2017 Convention. Cynthia received a Star Award in 2018 from the Brazosport College Small Business Development Center. Her watercolor painting entitled Heron #2 won third place at the 2020 Texas State Master Naturalist Virtual Convention Art and Media Contest.
She is self taught and has taken workshops and classes locally, in the Houston area, as well as online with several internationally known artists. She is a member of The Brazosport Center for the Arts and Sciences and Arts for Rural Texas.
She enjoys participating in activities and membership in the Brazosport Art League, the National Society of Artists, Art League of Bay City/Matagorda County, Pearland Art League, as well as the oldest art league in Texas, the Galveston Art League. One of her great joys is giving back to the community by donating art to her local church and the San Jose Clinic in Houston for charitable fundraising events throughout the year.
She is a mother of two sons and enjoys spending time with her three grandchildren. She and her husband Victor live in Lake Jackson, Texas.
