A native New-Brunswicker, Sylvie Adams has lived mostly in Montreal since the 1980s. She has travelled intensively throughout her life, residing for brief periods in Germany, England and France.
She obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Concordia University and a Master’s Degree in Applied Sciences (Architecture) from Université de Montréal. She worked in the design field for close to fifteen years in Canada, the United States and Europe. Her love of visual arts brought her back to painting and she now has her own studio in Montreal, where she paints.
Her work has been featured in several solo exhibitions both in private and public galleries. She has also participated in numerous group exhibitions, nationally and internationally. Her work has been shown at prestigious International Contemporary Art Fairs, in the USA, Europe and Asia. She was also selected by the Director of Art Wynwood for a special exhibition in Honours of Shephard Fairey (the famous artist behind Obama’s “Hope” poster).
Her work can also be found in private and corporate collections, including the collections of Rio Tinto Alcan and Norwegian Cruise Line.
