Cynthia A. Corrigan
About the Artist 

A native of Long Island, Cindy moved to the Rochester area at the age of 13. Upon graduating high school she headed back to NYC to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology from which she graduated with heavy emphasis on figure drawing. FIT endowed Cindy with a scholarship for academic achievement.

After graduating from college Cindy worked as a graphic designer/illustrator for McCurdy’s advertising department and then on to an advertising agency where she worked as an art director. After four and a half years, she left the agency and started her own design business where much, but not all, work was computer generated. Cindy was commissioned for many years by RG&E to do a portrait of their annual Brigg’s award winner, whereby the winner was presented with their framed portrait.

Cindy resides in Penfield along with her two children, Mollie and Meagan. She prefers to work in acrylic, oil and pastels and her subject matter is usually figures, portraits and animals.

Before opening The Art Stop Cindy and her friend Teri, taught art lessons out of Teri's house. As interest in lessons grew and seeing a real need for a local art supply store Cindy and Teri Bracht decided to open The Art Stop. The store started out on the second floor, of 12 North Ave., about 1000 sq. feet and that included the lesson area! After only a year and a half the store tripled it's space and added on a fine art gallery featuring all local artists work and a custom frame shop. The second floor space is now dedicated to lessons, workshops and birthday parties. Cindy bought out her partner in March of 2007 and is now the sole proprietor of The Art Stop LLC.
