Sylvia Simmons was born and raised on the Central Coast of California. You can see the natural beauty she grew up surrounded by in her art work. Whether it be the winding grape vines, fairies she imagined as a child, the ocean, or the geometry of the fields you see it all expressed in art glass.
She has been dubbed a true artist by her peers. She originally picked up stained glass 39 years ago when her daughter needed a cage for her collectible dolls. She only apprenticed under Jean Snow for 18 hours. Only 3 lessons, 39 years later her work speaks for itself. Sylvia has been a proud participant of the Art-A-Fair festival in Laguna Beach, CA for the last 19 years.
