Cecilia is a native Texan, born and raised in Austin, now living out her dream of living on a farm in the Piney Woods of East Texas. Her husband converted part of the barn for her studio, thus the name "Tin Roof Studio". Most days, you'll find her painting fantastical oil paintings that merge realism with fantasy.
She has always loved a good fairy tale where good triumphs over evil and unicorns, dragons, and fairies exists. She believes they teach us about good and evil, how to persevere in spite of the odds, and invite us to use our imaginations. Thus she creates art that invites you into a fantastical world where wonder exists and good triumphs over evil.
