“I have been drawn to the arts since I was a young child. As a teenager, I began taking classes from a local artist where I learned about color and painting techniques. At Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, I studied design and graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. After an internship in the field, I went back to my first love – art. And, with this love of the arts and training, I started my decorative arts business.” ~ Sylvia T.
