Hi everyone,

I am a watercolour artist from Ontario, Canada. I am a realist painter, finding many subjects of interest to me from portraits to flowers and landscapes to still life. I presently live in Barrie Ontario having just moved from Thunder Bay where I lived for 36 years. I am married to Ron, a retired dermatologist, and I helped run the practice.  We have 3 children and 5 grandchildren and they are my life. Painting is what I do when not visiting with them. 

My Favourite photographer is Steve McCurry, who is known especially for his photograph of the Afghan Girl on the front cover of the National Geographic. I have received permission to paint and sell my renditions of his photographs on condition my renditions of his work are archived in his studios. His portraits are what drew me to his work and to painting portraits, and I have a few I am very fond of. Portraits are especially difficult to paint as the result must look exactly like the person you are painting. With other subjects, if you're a little off it's rarely noticed.I love to paint details in a painting and so I look to paint subjects that have rust or cracks or simply subjects that are up close. I try to find beauty in the everyday, the items we pass by and never notice. After all, we are surrounded by things we love and hold dear. 

I am approachable, and please don't feel shy about sending me an email if you have questions or if you are interested in my work. Sylvie.mahlerstudio@gmail.com

I am very pleased to announce that I have received representation at Art Space 106 Gallery in downtown Niagara on the Lake, Ontario, and at the Golden Gallery, Tobermory, Ontario.   Most paintings can be purchased through the galleries.
