About the Author

Ms. Wylie most recently was a partner in the avant-garde clothing company, X-Large. Moving to Southern California twelve years ago, she was immediately smitten by the unique tropical landscape including the year round blooms and rapid growth of plants.

Ms. Wylie's diverse background includes being raised on a farm and a subsequent degree in agriculture where she first developed a love for all things green. She was one of the artists featured in the Ghetto Gloss art catalog sold in all MOCA stores. Her tropical plant oil paintings were in the Girltag Space group art show in Venice, California. Recent shows include the DCA Fine Art Gallery's Arthaus show in Venice, the Ghetto Gloss all-girls show in Silverlake, and a solo show at the Baby Blues venue for emerging talents. You may have seen her original paintings in the movie, "You, Me and Dupree," released in the Fall of 2006. Her Public Art Project from the Wallcovering Series, was featured in St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. An exclusive boutique chain used her Wallcovering designs for its stores in Tokyo. In January of 2008, four of her paintings were made into 1,400 numbered and signed fine art lithographs.

Ms. Wylie, who received a full fellowship to Georgetown University, also attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Her paintings and prints are included in the collections of Mr. and Mrs. Sandy Kliman (producer of "The Aviator") and Mr. and Mrs. Elliot Stahler (founder of Kaplan, Stahler, Gumer Literary Agency), among others. Her first art book, "As The Crow Flies, The Art of Cynthia Wylie," was published in 2006.

Her influences include: Charles Rennie Macintosh, Andy Warhol, Frida Kahalo, Henri Rousseau, Aya Takano, and Kehinde Wiley.
