Painting, Booth 324
Born in Italy, Silvia started her artistic career in Rome where she held her first one woman show in 1975. After several other successful exhibitions she decided to continue her profession in Canada and in 1979 set her studio in Toronto fulfilling her lifelong ambition of becoming a full-time artist. She does collages of ancient medieval Italian suburbs or typical Venetian canals which take shape with the precision of an architectural drawing and oils where she depicts Canadian country life, bringing her people and their rural environment warmly alive. She is represented by galleries across Canada and her work figures in many art collections in Canada and abroad.
