About the Artists

Sylvia Kleindinst

My  art goes in several directions. I have been a paper doll artist for thirty years and create work to display and sell at conventions for those who collect and create paper dolls. I have also had a long interest in collage and mixed media work that includes handmade books, altered books and more recently collages and paintings created in Photoshop with vintage images. I have also taken many photographs of textures and landscapes that relate to collage work because of the connection to design elements. I taught art for twenty five years and used a wide variety of media with students which has carried over into my personal work. I like water colors, colored pencil, pastels and all kinds of papers for most of my work. I also do pastel portraits and have studied with George Palmer over many years.
