Silve has had a successful career as an art director and creative director, developing the visual branding for a well-known Fortune 500 company. Now, she explores nature and its relation to abstract thought in highly personal expressionist paintings. She views the creation of art as a meditation on nature and life itself, emphasizing the understanding between the eternal as well as the ever-changing aspects of nature and life. Silve maintains two studios, one in Portland and another in Provence, France.
