Cynthia L. Cooper

Cynthia is the owner of The Framery in Hobe Sound.  The Framery, Inc., is Hobe Sound's premier frame shop & gallery.  Cynthia is a graduate of Tusculum College in Greeneville, Tenn.  She has her B.S. in Managerial Accounting and a B.A. in Mixed Media, Intaglio, and Silk Screening.

Her painting style was developed from working with acid etchings.  She worked with creating textures for silk screening which led to work incorporating natural materials and other mixed media on canvas.  Her current work is a simplification of those techniques.  Cynthia often uses sand, palm fronds, and other materials to add interesting texture to her paintings.

Cynthia's art style was also influenced by her international travels.  In the late 80's she bought a one way ticket to London and traveled the globe spending time in The British Isles, Europe, Greece, South Africa, Hong Kong and China, Australia, and New Zealand.

Cynthia, who apprenticed at Cantebury Cathedral, is adept at restorative work and her reputation for this expertise is continually growing in South Florida.

Cynthia is a long time member of the Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce.  As a philanthropist, she is an avid supporter of many local Hobe Sound organizations

and  charities.  



The Owner

Along with her pieces displayed at The Framery, you can also currently find her work at The Profile Gallery in Jupiter, Florida.


Cynthia recently participated in a charity for the Apollo School in Hobe Sound, Florida.  She and many other local artists utilized old windows from the original structure of the school building to create a unique piece of art to be auctioned off.  The image to the left is Cynthia and her niece Stephanie in front of a table she created using the window, a mixed-media canvas painting,  glass, and a table frame she built.  The table was auctioned to the highest bidder where 100% of the funds went to the Apollo School.
