Cynthia McLoughlin in her studio.


Cynthia McLoughlin is a contemporary American painter. Her stylized work is characterized by the reflective qualities of the metal panels on which she paints. 

Ms McLoughlin’s passion for painting is captured in her Storm series. The collision of opposing air systems wreaks havoc with a peaceful environment.  It becomes a metaphor for living today in our world.

Soaring to new heights in a hot air balloon led to her fascination of painting from a bird’s eye view in her Mountains series. Cultures across the span of history have gravitated to the mountains for peace and clarity. Ms McLoughlin currently resides in the mountains of Utah, in Park City.

Imposing abstraction to recognizable scenes creates space for the viewer to bring their own experiences to her abstract work.  Freud said, “Dreams are the royal road to the subconscious.” It seems that the paintings in this series tap into the subconscious as well; we see where we have come from and the path before us with all its possibilities.

Ms. McLoughlin studied Fine Art at the State University of N.Y. in Utica, N.Y., and Fashion Design at Parsons School of Design, in New York City, N.Y. She worked in her field of expertise for many years before settling down to raise her children. Ms. McLoughlin decided to follow her passion for painting full time in 2008. She has since exhibited her works in numerous international art shows including Art Basel Switzerland, Art Basel Miami, Florida, the Swiss Art Expo in Zurich, Switzerland, The Monaco Yacht Show in Monte Carlo, Monaco, as well as shows in New York City, NY, Los Angeles, CA and Park City, UT, in the United States.
