Painter and teacher
Sylvia Paquette was destined to lead an artistic career. After several years of drifting, the discovery of oil revealed her to herself. One day she would be a painter, exhibit her works and live from her art. Since 1998 Sylvia has been offering classes to children, teenagers and adults in her art studio. She also gives painting classes at several community centers as well as for intellectually handicapped.
Into the fifth decade of her life, Sylvia naturally began to let go and trust her intuition to guide and inspire her. She found self-fulfilment when exploring matter, texture and finishes. The way she created was transformed. This conferred a much more definite symbolic to her art.
The glow and brilliance of the metallic tones used in her recent works captivate our gaze and evoke our dreams. This new and refreshing style rapidly became very popular as Sylvia’s work gained more and more praise. In August of 2013, she was recognised with the “Public’s Choice” award and the “Choice among artists” award at the Prevost Symposium. She went on to receive several more acknowledgments.
