Welcome to my Site
My name is Cynthia Midori and I am an NYC based artist. I am a teacher by day and artist by night. Art has always been my heart and making it into a career has been a dream. I offer commissioned painting and custom illustration services, event invitation services, a card shop under my custom brand Cyncerely Yours, and I will soon be offering a bridal shop and purchases from my artist's seasonal collections. From experiencing your love at live events to creating commissioned pieces, I adore every opportunity to make something special for you, Cyncerely Yours.
What Inspires My Cyncerely Yours Card Designs
I wanted to create collections of cards and media that gave everyone the opportunity to see themselves within my cards and work. As an Asian American, since I was a child, the only time I’ve seen someone who looks like me on a product, often happened to be an anime character.... There was little to no representation and it was a rare occasion that I saw myself in pop-culture, products or media. I wouldn't see myself in products and media and this didn't exactly empower me as a biracial woman who’s trying to feel beautiful in her skin. No, we are not our stereotypes or "beautiful for a _____ woman” (insert ethnicity into racist quote we’ve all heard one too may times). We are each strong, beautiful females, and deserve to see ourselves in media & art that way... exactly as we are and how we feel. I worked long and hard to be sure all women would get the opportunity to see themselves in my work. My cards are inspired and based on representation and inclusion because IT MATTERS! I promise to continue to create for more inclusion!
