Preferred Media: Watercolour Painting
My name is Sylvie Mahler and I was born in Montreal where I met my husband. We have three grown adult children and five grandchildren and they are truly the highlight of our lives.
I have no formal training in art, but took some lessons in water colour as an adult. Slowly I learned my craft and grew to love the medium. I work on Ampersand Aquabord, which gives me the ability to do the detail which I love. I enjoy painting old things, the rust, cracks and old wood of my subject. I also love painting faces, capturing the emotion and the likeness of the person.
As an artist, I attempt to produce a painting that is not only pleasing to the eye but that elicits an emotional response. I am a realist water colourist, and I love what I do.
