American artist, Cynthia A. Dawley, expertly uses color and light to capture moments on canvas. Growing up as the daughter of world renowned artist, Joseph Dawley, Cynthia has been surrounded by the art world her entire life. Her works have been used on corporate levels by such entities as Cartier, Colavita, and on the HBO series The Sopranos.

A member of Oil Painters of America, the American Impressionist Society, and American Women Artists, Cynthia strives to continue creating the highest integrity artwork, as she carries on her family legacy. Working solely in oils, Cynthia has exhibited her works in galleries nationally, and is included in numerous private and public collections.

One can clearly sense the artist paints not only what she sees, but what she feels and has experienced. Her exquisite use of color and light masterfully reflect life’s beauty, complexities, and simplicities onto a canvas, creating paintings that speak to the heart.


Cynthia Dawley now paints in the very studio that was once her father's, in her Cranford, NJ home.
