About Sylvia

Sylvia was born in Caracas, Venezuela. After a brief career as an attorney she decided to follow her true calling as a visual artist. She attended “The Art Institute” in Durham, NC and developed interest in the Study of Color and Concept Development. Her work is influenced by “discoveries” she makes everyday. Lately she has being leaning towards Chemistry and Physics. She is supported in following her dreams by her husband, her baby Diego and her dog Keiki.

Artist Statement:

My entire process has a recurring theme: To Discover. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to be a kid during adulthood; to be a child while keeping our adult skills in reason and understanding; to keep a child’s sense of wonder while being conscious of our own sense of amazement. In all my line of work, I use a theme that interests me, study it, and then develop some of the concepts into my visual proposal. My intention is to amaze viewers and make them curious about a subject, whether it is scientific or historic. My goal is to engage spectators with a concept that leaves them wanting to learn more and spread the word.
