Synne Magar Ferguson is a native Texan that comes from long line of artisans spanning multiple generations. She has been studying art since she was thirteen years old. Upon graduating High School in Irving, Texas and much later achieving a degree in art, she has gradually developed her own unique artistic "style" by experimenting and combining mediums and utilizing different textures and techniques to create the unusual.
Synne and her family moved to Allen, TX in 1993. Both she and her husband Ben have served the Allen community over the years by serving on multiple city boards as well as local private organizations.
Synne has been actively promoting and nurturing the arts in Allen, TX since 2004. Although she has an appreciation for all of the creative arts, her passion lies with the visual arts. She has been freelance writing under “Where For Art Thou” since 2007 in an effort to bring more focus to art events throughout the Allen community as well as surrounding communities. She is the owner of Aurora Images Art Studio, a teaching studio established in 2006 and located in Allen, TX. The Studio’s logo: “Where Creativity Comes to Play” describes the studio as a place where students may come to express themselves through creative thought and design while learning about and experimenting with the various art mediums. Synne sponsors and coordinates at least 3 Visual Arts exhibits annually through the studio. These exhibits promote art appreciation within the community and they provide another venue for local professional artisans and students to exhibit and sell their art work.
Synne is an award winning acrylic and oil painter and her work can be found in the homes of collectors scattered throughout the southern region of the United States. Her inspiration comes from the beauty in nature and music. Her artistic technique is very expressive, blending colors to achieve both a soft and yet often bold statement of color and subject. Her work is predominantly fantasy and wildlife but has been know to explore outside “the box”.
Synne's Graphite Art
Around the 1490's is when the new dress for Renaissance began. It was a period where excessiveness was the norm. Many European countries stuck to medieval influenced styles and feathers were put on everything from wide-brimmed hats to the knees. It was a time of creative expression that went over the top into new discoveries.
The origins of the masquerade ball can be traced to the Italian Renaissance. The dances were held for the upper classes and nobility, but the special attraction of the mask was that people could flirt and dance with anyone, which would not have been allowed under any other circumstance.
There is nothing quite so exotic and exciting as a dance where masquerade ball masks are worn. Masks worn by the upper classes and Nobility were elaborately adorned with metallics and feather plumes. Colors of the period included pristine white linens or dark, rich and mysterious jewel tones. Celebrations among commoners would inspire masks adorned with found items such as leaves, nuts, berries and flowers.
Synne's artistic rennaissance mask creations, inspired by nature and the four elements; Air, Fire, Water, and Earth capture the uninhibited mystery of the masquerade. Beautiful and ornate, these masks capture the imagination taking us back to another place and time.
