Sylvia Weir Art
When I was a little girl my ambition was to read all the books in the library, to run a doll hospital and to make dioramas for museums. Now I work in the medical field, have a huge personal library, and make artwork in the form of hand-made books, utilitarian quilts for relatives and orphaned boys, and portraits of people and places. It’s a long road from that little girl dressed in tie-back dresses and pigtails who cherished trips to the library. My artwork has developed in several directions; abstractions, portraiture, and flights of fancy in terms of hand-made books complete with illustrations and fantasy stories. My only problem is that my mind thinks faster than my fingers can work and there is so much to choose from.
