Internationally recognized for her restoration work in Stained Glass art, Costa Rican artist Sylvia Laks describes the intricate work that she does along with balancing other interests of hers such as oil painting.
Located in a small town (Heredia) about 30min outside of San Jose in Costa Rica is Sylvia Laks gallery and workshop. Known for her great technique in stained glass painting we fell in love with her personal work as well as her oil paintings. It was such an experience seeing how much technical work and preparation is required for this type of work and we very much enjoyed learning a bit about the process of such a complex art craft. Sylvia, full of humor and wit, opened up to us about the difficulties of being a stained glass artist, and how oil painting allows her to express her creativity.
