Cyn Macgregor was born in Ohio and works in San Francisco, Atlanta, Raleigh, and New York. She is an award-winning, abstract, mixed-media artist. She works mainly in acrylics, watercolor, oils, pastels, and charcoal.
Her artwork is in private collections around the world. She has been part of group exhibitions at Visual Art Exchange, Band Together, and Durham Scrap Exchange as well as solo exhibits at Carter Building Studios, public libraries, and public events.
Her creative journey began as a teen and studied photography at the School of Modern Photography and landed an internship at Hudson Daily Sun learning graphic design and publishing. Cyn co-owned a print shop for several years then launched Cynergie Studio, now her creative hub for graphic design, fine art, filmmaking, and book self-publishing. She studied interior design at American Intercontinental University where she rekindled her passion for painting and the connection between art and space. Her prior photography, printing education blended perfectly with her devotion for creating artwork with purpose.
Inspiration and beyond
Her inspiration comes from a life traveled and lived with creative exploration. Cyn believes that every mark a person makes is important. To reinforce this idea with young minds she founded Sun & Moon Studio, a studio for kids to explore creativity, get messy and create art. As an extension of this idea, she was honored to provide a platform for artists to talk about their ideas and art as the Raleigh city organizer for PechaKucha Night for seven years. Her creative exploration extends into filmmaking where she provides creative direction and assistance to produce award-winning short films.
Commitment to cause
Her global passion is accessible, safe drinking water for communities. In 2017 her commitment helped to drill a well in Malawi, Africa that services 246 beneficiaries. A portion of sales goes to fund more water projects.
