Biography


Sylvie was born in Hull, Quebec and raised in Ottawa, Ontario. She moved to the West coast in her early 20s. Her artistic influences began early when she became a frequent visitor at the National Art Gallery in Ottawa. She loved to paint and draw as a young person but, it wasn't until she retired from her work life as yoga instructor, nurse and web developer/designer, that she was able to return to her first love of “art.”
 
Sylvie started as a self-taught artist and then completed many workshops and courses and anticipates many more. Her previous careers and curious personality have taught her to trust her intuition and be a lifelong learner.  In keeping up with technology, and with an eye for design and color, she quickly adapted to her environment and developed skills which set the stage for her current art career. She enjoys the challenges of painting and drawing with a variety of media, always learning new techniques along the way.

Sylvie shows her work in several galleries in member shows, juried shows and the in the Central Island Studio Tour.

Sylvie is a member of the Arrowsmith chapter on the executive board and a member of the Nanaimo chapter. She is also a member of Comox Valley Arts - Community Arts Council.
