Who I'm and what I do:My name is Stéphanie Bouw aka Sybile Art and I am an artist from Brussels. Painter and children's Book Illustrator since 2009 I illustrated many children books, I mainly work with Editions Hemma - Editions Auzou - Editions Lito. In the same time I started my painting journey and I paint pale skinned maidens who reminds chinese porcelain dolls, a slight and innocent nudity, silent and lost in their thoughts, floating in delicate fabrics, bright and contrasted colors, abundance of nature elements and patterns with a strong influence for Asian culture and aesthetics. Because I always work with my passion and my desire of the moment, I allow myself various styles, so sometimes, when I feel the need to express the fantasy in me I also paint cute girls with big eyes and colored hairs. www.sybile.net
