About

Wen Sylvestre

Living below sea level in The Netherlands, self-taught mixed media girl with a stubborn tendency to paint everyone’s clothes red  A Magpie with a cabinet of curiosities featuring the usual odd bits from walks in nature, and things others might classify as trash but which are irresistible to me. I love textures, my digital library is full of them (photos, paintings, mixed media, textile work, etc).
Passionate about history, ethnic cultures, geology and nature. As a little kiddo I used to grab the books from my grandparents’ shelves and immersed myself in other worlds of time and place. When I learned to read I eagerly started reading the captions underneath the photos. I still have a book addiction beyond my purse and bookshelves.
