"Cynthia, your work is done with skill. It shows imaginative and experimental ideas and real meaning. You are obviously in tune with your inner creative voices as you work on a piece!"

Alchemist Cynthia van Leeuwen

I am an oil painter,  portrait painter. I also paint what I call Psychedelic History,  which is all the history they burned the books of, smashed the statues of, killed and murdered people for. The main motivating factor in all of these cultures and types of art is Love. Love has been badly maligned. I want peace on this old planet. Through my mother, I also stumbled upon making skin cream. Super Powers Potion is a sustainable and effective skin cream. One of the secret ingredients in this product is the Speed of Light. I realize how out there that sounds but it was a gift landing right in my lap. It makes all the difference. ...more info
