As a woman and an artist, Sylvie Blum offers a unique perspective on the female form. Each impeccable image transcends sculptured form to convey the true essence of a beautiful and confident woman. As a muse and former model Sylvie understands how important the subject is to the creative process. Her technique and compositions are remarkable, yet her endearing and fun-filled personality sets her subjects at ease. Sylvie brings not just perfection but passion to her work.
Throughout her life, she has been traveling the world. Asia, Africa, Australia, the middle East, Europe, South America and the US.
Sylvie published five books. Her 5th book “Naked Beauty” by TeNeues was followed by a joint exhibition with Herb Ritts at the Fahey Klein Gallery in Los Angeles. The foreword was written by Anne Wilkes Tucker, curator of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
