Sylvia Baker de Perkal (London, 1962)
I have been living in Mallorca (Spain) for the last 25 years in a country home surrounded by nature. I am a translator by profession, but in 2019 a lifetime of loving art came into its own and painting became a necessary passion for me. I suddenly had the time, the encouragement, the confidence and the inspiration to pour all the beauty I see around me on canvas. A selection of my recent work (pieces privately owned, pieces sold and work available) is shown on this site.
This is an article published in CELEBRITY MAGAZINE MALLORCA which truly summarises how I feel about having the privilege of dedicating much of my time at this stage of my life to art.
Other work for practice or fun that I have been busy doing:
Pomegranate season in Mallorca.
Seascapes. How can one not paint the sea when surrounded by it? The beautiful Mediterranean.
