Sylvia Hierro

Sylvia’s studio currently features a wall covered in collages and another with oil and acrylic paintings in progress. She begins with sketches that lead to a series of paintings where realistic elements transform into abstractions. Her goal is to convey an object’s essence and emotional response. Sylvia founded and chaired the Fine Arts Department at Canterbury School in New Milford, where she taught for over 20 years. She has been painting since the age of 5. Visit her website at
