Cynthia Ann Shumaker’s Watercolors burst with an uncommon freshness and joy. Her command of shape, color, and light invigorates a wide range of subject materials from florals and landscapes to architecture. Her watercolors have been exhibited at the Maryland Federation of Art, Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, and the Mitchell Gallery at St. John’s College. Cynthia received a BA from Hillsdale College and a Masters Degree in Art Therapy from Wayne State University. Cynthia has been an instructor at Anne Arundel Community College and has been painting in watercolor for over thirty-five years.
