Sylvina Rollins is an artist who paints with oil. She is influenced and inspired by nature, her many travels and plein air painting. From the farms of her youth to the rolling green hills of Ireland to the tulip fields of Washington State, Sylvina’s work explores the depth of her experiences in full color.
Over the past decade, Sylvina has been developing her skill and individual style. She is committed to “showing up” to paint. Recently, Sylvina has been on a hunt for cows to paint. Curious as they are, cows do not stand still for long and
Sylvina finds herself playing “cow paparazzi.”. Painting her bovine friends on location is free flowing fun for Sylvina. Studio work is a comfort and bringing the plein air experience indoors, especially with New England’s unpredictable weather, offers Sylvina another avenue in which to cultivate that spontaneous flow that we often find in her paintings. Using her gift for photography, Sylvina places animals and subjects into harmonious settings.
Sylvina grew up on the family farm in Colchester and finds herself deeply connected to all aspects of farm life, from the cows, horses, sheep, geese, cats, dogs, flowers and pumpkins to the timeless land itself which Sylvina finds herself an integral part of. She lives in Connecticut with her loving family and fabulous pets on a small farm; a farm from which she draws painting inspiration on an almost daily basis.
