Silvia Tait



Abstract painter Sylvia Tait, who lives in West Vancouver,
is one of Canada's senior artists of international status.




Born in Montreal, she studied for years at the
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts under



and Eldon Grier
(whom she eventually married).














Silvia Tait won the competition for the Aquatic Center in West Vancouver, BC.



"AquaScapes" is an art piece of enormous proportions.





Sylvia Tait - Saraband


Although her early paintings were representational her mature and current works on canvas and on paper are purely abstract, showing a complex use of layered high key colour.



Her work is inspired by classical music. 


Sylvia Tait - Breakaway


See more of Silvia's paintings at the bau-xi gallery - more abstract paintings


 Theses two paintings below were a study I did a long time ago when I first discovered Silvia Tait.
