Having earned a BA in Fine Art from Brandeis University, and both MA and CAS degrees in Arts and Humanities from NYU, she has pursued her combined career as an artist and an art teacher. Aside from her formal degree work in the U.S., she spent six years teaching art and studying in Italy, England and Germany. She enrolled as a foreign student at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Torino, and subsequently earned a residency in Pietrasanta at the Sem Ghelardini Marble Laboratory. She was also awarded two artist residencies in photography in the Burren, Ireland and the Instituto di Santa Reparata in Florence. Her art is deeply informed by her European training, and her work references classical themes in her innovative work in clay and mixed media photography.
Sylvia has exhibited widely in the NY area, as well as in Italy and Greece. She is currently involved with the Blue Door Gallery as Program Director and member of their Executive Board.
