Art on the walls

Paul Klee said: A line is a dot that went for a walk.

 'That thought makes me smile. I imagine my dots to dance!'

Silvi was born in 1979 in Germany and after her degree in Sports Marketing travelled extensively through her work in motor racing before moving to the UK, where she now happily lives and works in paint. 

Silvi trained in classic and contemporary oil painting and finished her Diploma in 2016. She works full-time from her cherished studio space in Clanfield, about 30min drive from Bourton-on-the-Water and makes a smashing cup of tea and coffee.
