Oil painter Sylviane Giacoletto is passionate about the magic transformation of a blank canvas into an inviting landscape. An avid backpacker, she is inspired by the specific colors and light in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Her work is always evolving toward the best rendition of emotions felt when one is with nature.
Sylviane says, “I spend a lot of time with Mother Earth. It is part of my daily life to walk, hike or backpack. Nature is my main source of inspiration and that is where the calling is for me right now. Through my brushstrokes I want to share with you the trails of Desolation Wilderness leading to breathtaking views of Alpine Lakes. I want to capture the smell of pine needles and bark, the earthiness of mushrooms. I want to convey with my palette knife the roughness of warm granite. I want to invite you to embrace the celestial blues of high elevation, untouched by polluted air. I want you to take off your shoes and jump in the pristine waters. I want you to stop and contemplate what is offered and so often ignored.”
Sylviane resides and works in her home studio in Grass Valley and is an Associate Member of Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists and Women Artists of the West.
