Hello, I'm Sylvia.
I am an Asheville-based illustrator and graphic designer. I jumped the pond from merry old England 20 years ago, raised two wonderful children, launched a software business, and am now fully following my passion to illustrate and design.
My early influences include Aubrey Beardsley, E. H. Shepherd, Edward Gorey as well as 18th century Japanese prints, resulting in a minimalist, Zen-like style. Inspiration is drawn from everything and everyone around me, especially Lily, my tiny white cat, and a wonderful Wheaten Terrier called Chapman (both of whom make appearances in my card collections). To purchase my cards, click on "SHOP" at the top of the page.
I am a graduate from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and have 17 years of experience providing my creative expertise to businesses and entrepreneurs. My unique illustrations and graphic design—on cards, books, packaging, or wherever they are designed to end up—are lovingly rendered. I hope they will give you as much pleasure as they have given me in creating them.
I’d love to hear about your project and how we can work together. Simply reach out in the "CONTACT" section of this website.
Hope to hear from you!
