Charlotte-based Cynthia Flaxman Frank is a studio artist whose work as a graphic designer carries over to the canvas and informs her subject matter and process—symbol, icon, ephemera and text, reproduced, repeated, and collaged. The resulting images comprise the unique pages of her particular narrative.


Cynthia is the owner of Cynthia Frank Design, and Partner in PAC3, an award-winning public art collaboration. Cynthia teaches at UNCC in the Department of Art and Art History, and has served on the Boards of AIGA Charlotte, Founders’ Circle Affiliate of the Mint Museum Craft + Design and The Wall Poems of Charlotte, an ongoing public mural project that celebrates North Carolina’s literary heritage.
