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.
NEW EXHIBITION IN CASAL PERE CAPELLÁ- ALGAIDA (MALLORCA) – JANUARY 2023
A new exhibition space has been inaugurated in my village of Algaida (Mallorca- Spain) and I was asked to be the first artist to exhibit. It opened on 20th January and can be visited until mid-March.
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.
