Welcome to Napping Porch Press!
My name is Cynn Chadwick, and I am a novelist by trade and an outsider artist by surprise. I like quirky old buildings, churches, diners, gas stations, seaside boardwalks, mountain top cabins, and bunches of other stuff, which all, somehow, become cartoon versions of themselves in my paintings. I work in acrylic on canvas and clay tiles.
My Studio the Napping Porch
I mostly paint images I see in my mind, but I also like to re-imagine favorite places, seasons, occasions, events, and memories for folks. If you have an idea for a painting, all I need are a few pictures of your special memory, and I'll do my best to capture it on canvas for you.
In 2013, this collection of tiles debuted at Lola's Salon & Gallery on Biltmore Avenue in Downtown Asheville.
