Sya is an internet-taught artist from Detroit who paints in acrylics and oils. Her oeuvre includes a variety of subjects that integrate her love of movement with themes of the divine feminine and deep ecology philosophy.
Sya's first love was dancing. During her youth, she studied over a dozen styles of dance and toured Germany and France in a ballet ensemble at the age of 16. After graduating with a B.S. from Eastern Michigan University, she began performing professionally worldwide.
Sya's love of movement clearly manifests in her paintings. She was always fascinated by the perceived dualities of the world, and both painting and dancing allowed exploration of these dynamics. She felt energized by painting, the same way she was compelled by the silences in a song. Watching fluid lines and figures emerge from nothing, interacting with negative space in a manner of support and wholeness... she found a new love.
