I purchased three paintings and they are absolutely beautiful! More spectacular in person than a little picture. Shipping was fast. I will definitely be purchasing others in the future to add to my collection. Thank you so much!

Cynthia is an absolute joy to work with, her attention to detail is second to none! My Lego mad boss was absolutely delighted with his painting as I knew he would be! If you want something that little bit different and very personal, then look no further, so very very pleased with the finished result, highly recommended. Cynthia is a very clever and talented lady! Thank you so much 👍😃

The Frog in Whimsical

I named my Etsy shop ‘The Whimsical Frog’ in honor of my sister Susan, my biggest fan and very first inspiration. Long ago and far away, before motherhood and Vet School, I was heavily involved in animal rescue. Around that time, I trapped two little feral black kittens at the Sacramento Zoo where I was volunteering at the time. Having no luck taming these little wild twin girls, I enlisted the help of my sister, who seemed to have a magical effect on them. She proceeded to adopt them. When they were scared they would stiffen their back legs and spread their little toes, resembling the webbed feet of a frog. So we nicknamed them ‘sister frogs’, which stuck, and we have been calling each other ‘sister frog’ ever since. My little sister now lives far away in Japan, and I rarely get to see her. But she will always be my sister frog, and thus I named my Etsy shop after her.

    I am a nocturnal Artist, Mom, & Veterinarian - compelled to create in the middle of the night when not a creature is stirring (except for my cat who is also nocturnal). I find inspiration in my children, animals, nature, and the quiet of night-time.
