Sylvia Cook is lucky enough to call the Pacific Northwest home, settling in the Seattle area during her school years. Growing up with a father who was a photographer, she learned to appreciate the great outdoors from an early age. Weekends were spent hiking in the mountains and learning and watching her father take photographs.
There was a natural evolution of her hobby into both a portrait business and selling her fine art photography. Everything in the world around her is inspiring, from the tiniest mushroom in the grass, to the vast landscapes of her travels. Influenced by the shabby chic, cottage style of home decor, you will find her floral images sophisticated, elegant and feminine. Her work has been called gracefully soothing, warm, comforting and versatile.
It has been said that "Her beach images stir the imagination, pull you into the scene and again, feel warm and comforting. Almost like a vintage poster, the soft fading and muted tones have a unique way of adding depth and a bit of mystery to the image. They always make you wonder what it would have been like to be in that moment, appreciating all that was there to see and experience."
Take your time, look around through the galleries and drop me a line if you have questions.

"My oldest daughter is thrilled with this shower curtain, and I'm quite pleased with it too. She wanted something interesting, and this was what she ultimately picked. I'm happy because it seems well made and sturdy, and she's happy because of how nice it makes the bathroom look. And it really does make her bathroom look super nice. It's also basically as pictured, so nothing was off about it in the photos for us. So we're both quite pleased with this purchase!"
"I had saved this picture on my phone for almost a year but hesitated to buy it without being able to see it in person first. I needed a 24 x 36 and was afraid to pay so much for the larger size and then be disappointed. Well, I am so happy I took the chance because it's just as beautiful in person! The colors are so vivid and the photo is just my style. I can't wait to see how it is going to look framed on my wall above my couch in my living room! The picture came right on time and was in perfect condition. Sylvia has an eye for capturing the beauty in simple things. Every time I look at this photo it makes me smile!"
"This is a beautiful shower curtain! Colors are true to the picture. Looks great in my 1960 mint green bathrooom."
" I love it! It was exactly how I imagined it, slightly out of focus, good print quality, evenly pigmented, fabric feels nice to touch and falls heavy and straight. The deep blue and green colors tint my bathroom in an eery hue. Absolutely magical and calming! Delivery was also quick, got an answer to a question the next day and packaging was proper. Would recommend and have gotten positive feedback from guests. "
"Even lovelier in person. I'm enjoying hunting for the perfect frame for it. And, the shipping was lightning fast! Thanks, Sylvia. I'm looking forward to sharing your art in our home for others to enjoy, also."
