I strive to develop the technical skills needed to convey the emotional impact my subject has on me and, hopefully, on the viewers of my art. Color, design, and technique must all work together to achieve a mood that is expressive of the subject and resonates with the viewer.
I specialize in creating original artwork for the discriminating collector who truly appreciates the uniqueness of a one of a kind painting. For this reason, I have not gone into the print and limited edition market, nor do I make use of digital enhancement of colors and images and other techniques which can mask the seduction of an original painting.
About the Artist:
Sylvia Roman of Mahtomedi, Minnesota studied for six years with well known regional watercolorist, Frank Zeller. She has also studied with nationally known instructors including Skip Lawrence, Carla O’Connor and Alvaro Castagnet.
Sylvia is a current member and former board member of Northstar Watercolor Society and currently sits on the National Watercolor Show task group. She participates with NEMAA (Northeast Metro Area Artists) in Minneapolis, MN. and belongs to the White Bear Center for the Arts in White Bear Lake, MN.
Ms. Roman has degrees in Entomology, Plant Pathology, and Chemistry from her studies at the University of Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota. Her knowledge of the subjects is readily apparent in the feeling and forms she uses in her art to emotionally express her understanding of the environment in which we live.
