Family collaboration:
Extension haiga
started her "extensions" while living in Anahim Lake in the Chilcotin. In her work, she uses 'realistic' photographs and abstracts them with charcoal and pastel. Sylvia looks for links with line, colour, texture and now, with words in her collaborations with her father (Jim's) haiku. In her art she hopes to play with our perceptions.

Where is the line between reality and abstraction?

ylvia's extensions have been exhibited in the Station House Gallery, Williams Lake 1999, Rollin Art Gallery, Port Alberni 2000, Merritt Art Walk 2001 and 2002.

Sylvia's extensions begin with some of her own photographs which are pasted on artboard. She then uses pastels to extend and connect the images in the photographs and "play with our perceptions."
