Sibyl MacKenzie

Born in Virginia, the second daughter in a Foreign Service family, Sibyl lived in England, China and Germany. She studied Chinese watercolor painting under Hsiao Yu Hsien for five years. She graduated from Columbia University with a degree in German Literature and has worked for the Federal government as an analyst and speechwriter.

She works with realistic images, but places them in a context where fantasy meets reality, to explore the fine line between the inner and the outer world. Often she begin with just colors and shapes and then develops the images that emerge. She paints in acrylics on both hardboard and canvas and the paintings have many layers and textures.

Sibyl has exhibited in galleries in Virginia, Seattle, New York, Maryland, West Virginia, and Washington, DC and is currently represented by the Manhattan Golf and Gallery in Cumberland, MD, the Water Street Gallery in Petersburg, WV, Paintiques in Rehoboth, DE, and Oasis in Harrisonburg, VA.
