"Micron pens give me precision and durability while I create my artwork.
The length and weight of a Micron is as familiar as my own hand and essentially allows me to do what I do."


Liza Sylvestre was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her early life and adolescence was defined by a significant and progressive hearing loss. Communication became increasingly dependent on small details which she became sensitive to. This simple physical fact created a very distinct lens through which she processed the world and continues to process the world. 

Through her latest body of work she is conducting a visual investigation of her senses and how her body experiences the world through them. As she works Sylvestre asks "What does sound look like? How does it move through a body? How do senses attach themselves to each other and mix up?"
