About the Artist

Sylvia was born in Charlotte, North Carolina where she lived until 1972 when her husband was transferred to Gainesville, Florida. She and her family owned and operated a photography business until 1999.  Her sons are continuing on with the family business.

Sylvia has been painting in various mediums and techniques for over 20 years. She became interested in the Bob Ross technique and joined hobby classes from Orange Park to Ocala.

When the family business was sold in 1999, she was able to devote more time to painting and began taking instructor Certification classes in April of 1999, becoming a certified instructor in 1999 for Bob Ross. Since that time, she has ventured out, doing many different styles and techniques of oil painting.  .
