During Covid-19, Cynthia has been a bastion of art world positivity by creating a #CarryOnCreativitycampaign, donating to the Trussell Trust and also taking her loyal audience on virtual walks of art hotspots on her daily exercise routes @cynthia_corbett.

Cynthia trained as an art historian at @christiesinc Education before launching her gallery in 2004. Prior to this she worked as an international economist specialising in emerging markets, and was the architect and founder of the debt conversion plans for most of Sub-Saharan Africa in the 1980s.

Passionate about creating a stable of artists through identifying trends and supporting fledging careers (from emerging markets to emerging artists), Cynthia launched @youngmastersartprize in 2009. This unique not-for-profit competition is open to international artists and celebrates artistic skill and innovation with awareness of the Old Masters and art of the past.
