Sylvia Sun

Xiu Luo Sun (Sylvia) is a Chinese Australian artist with over 30 years experience in teaching, painting and drawing. After graduating from Qingdao University, China in 1985 and majoring in textiles and fashion design, she became an art and design lecturer. 

In China, Sylvia participated in numerous painting exhibitions and winning awards in multiple stage costume and fashion design competitions. In Australia she has been exploring still life paintings and experimenting with colour and pattern in oils, acrylic and pastels and turning everyday items such as flowers, vases, fruits and tea sets into extraordinary expressions of beauty and depth. She sees still life as an inanimate amalgamation of composition, decoration, rigour and flexibility. 

Xiu Luo’s paintings and artworks have been exhibited and published on many occasions overseas and in Australia, with several pieces currently in the possession of private collectors.

Sylvia currently teaches term drawing classes at gallery57, Concord
