Sylvia Mancuso Brestel
Thank you for stopping by!
I am a composer, musician, and a visual artist.
My different worlds often creatively cross paths by way of rhythmic and design elements. The art and music processes, for me, both reflect a blending of inspiration, improvisation, and
My vibrant, striking visual designs are hand dyed, hand painted, fiber drawn, shibori dyed, wet felted, nuno felted, or needle felted, and always made by my own two hands. Each piece is one of a kind and uniquely elegant.
I am passionate about working with fibers as I continue to explore textures, colors, and designs. It is an honor to continue the ancient, haptic art of felting wool by hand that reflects a connection to and reverence for our earth's treasures.
My music improvisations and compositions are eclectic in nature because that is where my muse seems to want to guide me and I always try to follow in the direction of my happiness.
For extraordinary art or eclectic, original music, contact me: email@example.com
Wishing you peace, prosperity, and playfulness.
