“It is exactly what it is”, could be one’s first impression with the work of Sylvie Overheul (1968). But if you take a closer look, you will find an added magical dimension in her drawings and paintings, a sparkle of idealism, at the edge of everyday life, and always with a Classic touch. She specializes in portrait painting, predominantly in acrylics, but also likes to work in oils, dry pastels and watercolours. In the last few years Sylvie Overheul has increasingly gained recognition. She was awarded first prize at the International Pastel Biennial Poland, she was nominated for “Painting of the Year 2013 and 2014”, and participated in the television programme “Stars on Canvas” . Sylvie studied at the Academy of Arts (Willem de Kooning) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. She frequently works on commission and exhibits regularly.
