From an early age, growing up in communist Bulgaria, Silvia was inspired by art and bold colours. Breaking her foot as a child gave her the time, space, focus and most especially pain to motivate a start into painting and a blossoming love of art. Unfortunately, her parents saw no future in fine art as a career, resulting in Silvia matriculating in Architecture.
Having moved to England as a young teenager, Silvia’s sense of belonging was rather shaken so she set off to explore the world and travel. Inspired by the azure blue seas and coral reefs of Australia, she settled in Sydney for a decade and owned a successful corporate interiors and construction management company. In a pursuit to express beyond the boundaries of concrete, brick, steel and glass, her designs were bold, bright and visually striking.
