Cynthia Coldren | Artist

As an artist, I create layered mixed-media collage paintings that embrace the abstract “language.” I arrange physical and visual opposites to explore connections and diversity. In joining familiar elements with ambiguous abstractions, I create paintings that can spark visual insight, new perspectives, and help us embrace our diverse connectedness.

My creative process is both planned and spontaneous. I use acrylic paint, pencil, ink, and paper fragments to weave together color, line, shape, and texture. As I add, intersect, remove, and overlap elements, a cohesive and complementary presence emerges, expressing the strong connection that exists among seemingly disconnected things.

And what about titles? Words are important and I view each title as an extension of the painting, helping the viewer make a first connection with the painting while inspiring their personal interpretation.


Abstract painter Cynthia Coldren explores the concept of connection in diversity through her mixed-media collage paintings on paper and canvas. Using paint, paper, and pencil, she creates abstract art that expresses the sense of connection that exists among disparate things.

Cynthia lives in Richardson, Texas. She studied fine art as an undergraduate student, transitioning her early representational direction to collaged abstraction in the last decade. She has received recognition and awards in recent curated art shows and has exhibited her paintings in solo and juried exhibitions both online and in North Texas. She is a member of the Texas Artists Coalition (TAC), the Visual Arts Guild of Frisco (VAGF),the Visual Art League of Lewisville (VAL), and the Visual Arts League of Allen (VALA).
