Biography


Born in the near-wilderness of northern Manitoba, Canada, Cynthia Jackson-Hein raised her children in Winnipeg, then traded brutal winters for the allure of the California Wine Country. While she maintains a Canadian summer home and studio on famous and beautiful Lake of the Woods, she has become an ardent and multi-talented participant in the lively Northern California arts scene. Soon after arriving, Cynthia apprenticed herself with Lillian Schaie Mattimore, who reawakened her considerable artistic talent.
 
Early on, she applied her love of nature to watercolors of wildlife and dogs, and studied under Adele Earnshaw and Joe Garcia. She soon found, however, that the greater sensuality and range of expression possible in working with oils drove her to that medium. She has since done graduate-level study at Art Academy University in San Francisco, and also studied under such internationally known artists as Michael Del Priore, Craig Nelson, Kathleen Dunphy, Everett Raymond Kinstler, Burton Silverman, Chris Newhard, and Brent Jensen.  At the Academy, her work has been selected for special display, and both her portrait and landscape work has been juried into their annual shows.
 
Cynthia always has a drawing pad and pencil nearby, at home or on the road.  Cynthia has had one woman shows in USA and Canada, has been juried into a number of shows, and her works and portrait commissions hang in private collections around Canada, Europe, the USA, and Mexico. She accepts private commissions for portraits, particular landscapes, and pictures of favorite animals.
