Sylvie Donmoyer

Welcome to the portfolio of Sylvie Donmoyer, a free lance illustrator and professional painter.

As a self taught artist, I have been involved in the visual arts all my life and have developed a wide variety of techniques ranging from airbrush and oil paint on canvas to 2 and 3D techniques

My specialty is pairing the precision of the scientific illustrator with the imagination of the professional artist.


As a painter, an early fascination for the Flemish Primitives lead me to Amsterdam and through the Dutch Golden age to Escher. The exploration of the visual side of Mathematics started with the encounter with mathematician Jean Pedersen at Santa Clara University, CA.


for publishing

As an illustrator, my goal is to clearly and precisely communicate complex scientific concepts in an esthetically pleasing way.

If you have a project, contact me so we can talk about it.


Exhibitions of my paintings have been held in Art galleries, convention centers and universities among others.
