  • Instructor

    Hong Kong-based designer and artist Cynthia Mak, who started her fashion career as a co-founder of knitwear label CYNTHIA & XIAO, has now expanded into the art world with a mission to create art that spreads joy and love.

    In 2021, the pandemic created new challenges, but gave Cynthia more time to once again explore her passion for art. She found painting with a brush to be relaxing and therapeutic. She loved the total control she had over the entire process. It reminded Cynthia of her younger self, using her art to express herself. And just like that, she embarked on a new journey of artistic exploration.
