Sylvie Peltier Artist Studio

Map #20
I paint abstract florals and landscapes and teach acrylic painting in my Qualicum Beach studio. I also create wearable art and home decor pieces from my paintings.

I’m fascinated by imperfection and I find exploring and mixing styles stimulating. I strive to evoke and to create joy and beauty rather than copy what is in front of me. I want people who view my work to be inspired and intrigued.

I am a self-taught artist and an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. I enjoy looking at the work of other artists and I find much inspiration in what they do. David Hockney, David T. Alexander, Wolf Kahn and Meghan Hildebrand are currently among my favourite painters.

Esspé is how I sign my paintings, the phonetic expression of my name’s initials, Sylvie Peltier.

I’ve lived in BC for over 30 years and it’s been close to 10 years since I picked up a paint brush with the determination to grow and learn and to create a thriving artistic practice.

Yes, with a little help
