Graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in 1979, Sylvia started her career at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City, and from there became a toy designer, children's book illustrator, and software background artist. From 2013 through 2016 she taught at a women’s university, Dar Al Hekma, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Plein air painting in watercolor is now her passion, and Southern California is the ideal place for it! Sylvia is currently teaching Botanical Illustration for Older Adults  and Beginning Outdoor Sketching in Pen, Ink, and Watercolor in the Extended Learning Program at Santa Barbara City College.
She lives in Ojai and is a member of the Society of Illustrators, Southern California Plein Air Painters Association, California Art Club, and Carpinteria Plein Air Painters.
