“Odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will. The persuasive power of an odor cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath into our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally.”

Sylvie was born in France where she studied Textile Design at the School of Applied Arts in Lyon. Always passionate about books, newspapers and illustrated magazines, after graduating she started working as a freelance illustrator. She prefers working with the monotype technique, but she also likes to explore other techniques such as etching and silkscreen. She participated in numerous group exhibitions. Sylvie also developed a passion for education through art. She is currently working on her first didactic book for children, which will be published in Italy. Her drawings are whimsical and profound, with a sensibility for everyday settings; this is what she says about her work: "What I want is to create an emotion, to take the viewer to the edge of my pencil and bring them to other realities."
