Welcome to The Studio

Welcome to my Studio. Like most quilters I love to share my work with others... and like most quilters I don't have my own personal gallery. I do, however, know how to build web sites... so I am delighted to welcome you to my virtual studio.

Cynthia About the Artist

As you can see, there are two boxes below. The information in both boxes is true but, I think you will agree, contains very different biographical details. I leave it to you to decide which box you read first.

My name is Cynthia Darlington. I am a quilter, fabric designer and (a long time ago) I was a design teacher in the National Art School in Sydney. I taught "Colour Theory", "Principles of Design", "Drawing" and "Design". I studied and received my design certificate from the National Art School in Sydney, Australia and I hold a City & Guilds Diploma in Patchwork and Quilting. I am a member of Studio Art Quilt Association, American Quilters Society and Art Fibre Dunedin. My name is Cynthia Darlington. I am a Neuroscientist and a neuroscience writer. I have published over 200 articles in scientific journals and 2 books, "The Female Brain" and "The Female Brain, Second Edition" published by Taylor and Francis. My PhD in Neurophysiology is from the University of Sydney. My research is on the consequences of inner ear damage and the deficits experienced by people who have suffered from such damage, mainly tinnitus and balance disorders.

About the Art

I love wild places and the traditions of the people who live in them. To travel in the desert is an adventure in sight and sound. The colours are vibrant and exotic and the sounds resonate with excitement. One of my enduring childhood memories is of waking in my sleeping bag just before dawn and listening to the sounds of the wind in the sand, the owls calling, the night creatures hurrying home, and the day creatures just waking up. I always felt I was listening to secrets and stories that were being told just for me. I always feel that the histories of the people who inhabit these wild places are their human interpretation of experiences like this.

Time to explore

There are five galleries for you to explore. I hope you enjoy my work.
