Sarah Joy Silva

Watercolor Painter

With encouragement from my family, I have been drawing and painting since a very young age. In awe of insects and small flowers, my love of tiny things has only grown over the years. During my time as a graduate student in Art Therapy, I began painting tiny original scenes and would write an encouraging quote on the back, and leave them for others to find at whatever coffee shop I happened to be studying at — a practice I continue to this day. My desire is that my art would be a source of encouragement and hope for others.

Making tiny art reminds me that even the smallest things in this life can influence anyone in a positive way. I hope someone’s day will be brighter because they found a tiny treasure – this brings me joy. I believe that art is quite important and I am honoured to be a part of bringing light and hope to others through the avenue of art.
