Biography

Already as a child, Sybil was devoted to painting, and she was very soon fascinated by the portrait. Very early she felt what her life would be made of, and what her path would be.

She followed lectures at High National School of Applied Arts (“Duperré”) in Paris (1990). In her work she aims at telling the human being in its purest and most intimate dimension. Whether it be during her travels, or more recently on motherhood and old age subjects, she catches and translates the looks, as open windows on souls, with great intensity and accuracy. Her personal line of approach, between dreamlike and symbolic painting, is to tell our common destiny (life, love and death) by leaving a trace of our individualities.

Her two favorite techniques, on portraits and all day life scenes, are undeniably oil on linen and ink on paper. She more recently introduced mixed techniques such as chalk and acrylic on gray-brown paper. Whatever techniques she chooses, a state of the art mastery of drawing remains the starting point of the works she builds.

She has been member of numerous panel of judges for many years, and has been giving painting lessons for various audiences.
