Sylvia Reitzema is a fine artist, who works both from the figure and the surrounding environment. She produces drawings and paintings using mixed media, oil paints and inks.
Drawing on location has had a major influence on her work; from aerial views that record the layout of the land to assembled drawings created when travelling through a place. Developing drawings from her sketchbook to the studio, current work represent the sublime found when meditating and when observing the deeper layers of the natural environment, both geologically and metaphysically.
Sylvia studied a MA in Drawing as Process at Kingston University, 2001-2002 and a BA Hons in Fine Art at Academy Minerva, Holland, 1995-1997. She has over 20 years experience of teaching Art in Further Education and Higher Education.
