Shion Art is... Silvia Busetto
Born and raised in Pieve di Soligo at the foot of Alps in northern Italy, Silvia has always had a passion for the Arts. Her youth was spent reading, drawing, taking photographs and working with a generous group of volunteers to establish and operate the community cinema.
The combination of these passions led her to open a comic shop, Shion Art, which she ran until moving to Australia in 2013. Silvia's arrival in Margaret River allowed her to pursue a burgeoning interest in painting.
Whilst mainly painting in watercolour or oil, local artists and the region itself have inspired and encouraged her to extend her artwork across various media and formats. Silvia's artistic style is in constant evolution as she explores new ideas, subject matter and techniques.
Currently, Silvia's body of work focuses on the beauty and expressivity of the human form, depicting performance artists; dancers or musicians, as they go about their own art.
Silvia signs her paintings as Shion.
