Sylvie Levesque

The Annex B16


"I feel honored to paint and teach art every week and to show my work at Alameda Artworks in San Jose, California. I like to treasure the ordinary activities in my painting, found the beauty in ordinary people. A lot of people asked me why I don’t paint faces in most of my paintings. My definition of portraiture is to capture the essence of each individual without rendering the actual details of their face. When I paint a person, I want to capture their intimity and movement in my piece. Also, I let the viewer picture themselves or a beloved one in the painting. "
