Silvana had mainly interests in drawing and painting. Her teacher was Fransje van Unnik in The Hague, before she moved to another part of the country, in 1989. It was there where she developed her passions for several Art Directions. To make ethical nude paintings she studied nude figure models for their anatomy, and became a painting teacher herself in her local place Terheijden, as in her Home Art Studio. She created many sculptures, hand formed ceramics and artworks with glass.
Since 2007 she added something new:
Her Outdoor Paintings are made on Wood with the FSC Quality Mark. The durable FSC system ensures that the forests in our world can stay preserved by means of responsible forestry, so the habitat of animals and plants are, AND stay, protected and the rights of the local population and foresters respected. This system has the purpose to produce less CO2 emissions, what playes a major role in the climate change. From all animals in the world 80% is depending on the forests, as well as millions of people who live or work in them.
