About the Artist

Silvija is a visual artist whose work embodies contemporary landscapes, colourful resins, and pen & ink renderings blended with a touch of abstract. Her pieces often combine acrylics with archival ink. Silvija initially studied Visual Arts at York University. She holds a Graphic Arts degree from a 4 year university program. She has exhibited in juried, solo, and group shows and her work is held in private collections in Canada and South America.

Believing in the importance of giving back to the arts community, Silvija served on the Executive Board of the Richmond Hill Group of Artists and has volunteered on several exhibition committees. She is honoured to have been invited as guest instructor for art workshops at St. Clement’s School in Toronto.
