About the Artist: Sylvia Makk has been exposed to the arts and artists from early on as her family traveled many times to Europe, visiting many great museums and art galleries. As a child, she enjoyed passing the time doodling on any paper she could get her hands on. After joining the Makk Family of artists in 1986, she began experimenting with acrylics first and then moved on to oil paints on canvas. She enjoys using bold colors and large strokes with palette knife and brush to achieve various compositions from fields of flowers to abstract market stands, from modern sunsets to serene lily ponds.
