Sylvia Paul studied painting at Colchester School of Art and Hockerill College of Education. She has been exhibiting in East Anglia for over 20 years and has held numerous solo exhibitions.
Although many of her paintings are inspired by the coast, her subject matter covers a broad spectrum. Recently her Japan inspired abstracts have attracted particular interest, one of them being hung in The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2009.
She has held two solo exhibitions in Japan and in 2013 at her exhibition at Gallery Sakura, Nagoaka, 36 paintings were sold in three days.
Other successes include being accepted for open exhibitions with The Pastel Society. The Royal Institute of Oil Painters, The Laing Landscape Exhibition and most recently The Royal Institute of Water Colour Artists where two of her landscape collages were exhibited.
Two of Sylvia’s paintings are in the Norwich Union Art Collection and her work is in many private collections in the UK and abroad.
