Biography

Силвия Павлова

“I am Silvia and I am an artist.

I create my own story with love and decication. I would like to tell you a little bit about it.

The story of my falling in love with art started long ago, ever since I was a child. In fact I secretly suspect it had begun much earlier, long before I get on the Earth. Whether it’s a gene from my artist parents or some other type of a secret code, I do not know. But all I know is that I remember that I always do this, I create. In the beginning even before going to school I played with the paper clippings under my mother’s desk and turned them into human figures, animals and puzzles. The creative environment in which I grew up helped me to develop my imagination and creative abilities.

I do not know how the falling in love has come, but it is definitely unusual, because it stayed, did not fly away as the “ordinary” ones, but continued its dynamics through the years until this day, together with its positive emotion, with its bright shades, with no annoyance, no mediocrity and boredom, only love and devotion.”
