Sylvia Inga Bueltel

Sylvia was born in Warsaw, Poland and moved to the United States at a young age with her family. She was constantly surrounded by her "non-related relatives"of the Minneapolis Polish community, who felt closer than family. At age 18, she moved from her home in Minneapolis to the great city of Chicago, where she studied Fine Arts: Drawing and Painting at Loyola University Chicago. Since graduation she has continued making art about her experiences in life, however beautiful or painful they may be.
