About the Artist
Sibet is a first generation American born of German and Hungarian parents. Being a native Southern Californian with time spent living in Maui solidified her love for the nature found along the shore and in the sea, which is predominantly expressed in her art. She holds an M.A. from the University of San Diego and has simultaneously stayed true to her first passion and love—painting—while running a private practice in Marriage and Family Therapy. She finds that the constant flow of emotion and deeply personal connection in both those fields feed each other, providing constant inspiration, challenge and creative energy.Using mainly acrylics, Sibet enjoys the flow and freedom of that medium and its ability to change easily, often seeing a painting being reborn and reinvented before her eyes prior to completion.
“For me, art has to do with connection—to a feeling, another person, a special place, an animal, a moment in time, even one’s own spirituality. What an incredible moment it is when one can relive that instant through a piece of art!
The creation of every piece begins with thoughtful focus of a memory, a sentimental journey back to that instant in time of connectedness. It is the most personal display of self and emotion.
It is a gift to me when a viewer’s emotion is also stirred; because for a brief moment, that person and I are connected as well.”
