Artist's Statement

How we interact with animals is central, an important indicator of who we are and now is becoming increasingly significant in our own welfare. There is creative satisfaction in portraying these beautiful creatures but we are also compelled to acknowledge the impact of modern life. This is not a sentimental craving; I feel that we should always draw attention to wildlife as it continues to emerge as a significant indicator of global environmental issues.

The animal kingdom has a lot to tell us, but we have to see it first.


A native of Northern Ireland, Sylvia moved to County Kilkenny over 25 years ago. Her background stems from formal art school training in London and Lancashire, predominantly as a sculptor, and this has come to influence her approach to two dimensional work. She frequently experiments with surfaces and mixed media, favouring wooden panels, as this affords greater freedom to develop working with a range of materials and techniques. Just as she would weld a sculptural armature, drawing is now the fundamental building block of every piece, this is where the real work lies, to construct from within. She mostly uses large chunks of graphite, with layers of gesso and acrylic. It’s a very tactile process, often pushing the medium with her fingers until the form takes shape.
