I have known Syl for about a year and a half now, and in SL years that is a long time, during which we have had many good conversations. Mind you short visits due to us leading very busy lives, but we manage to stay in touch, thank goodness! She is a wonderful person, and it shows in all she does! She is an extreme artist in RL/SL and also very interested in assisting others in their endeavors in the music field. In the following will be her Bio and also some other interesting facts about this very inspiring lady!
Syl Darcy AKA Sylvia Marks
I have painted all of my life in 2006 I opened a real life art gallery and studio in Rockledge, Florida. I feel very blessed to say I am host to 16 of the the most unique artist in my community. I paint live on the internet and that is what brought me into Second Life. I was painting live one day and one of my viewers from Belguim said to me have you been to Second Life:) I was like hahahaha what is Second Life?? He told me that he thought my art would be great here. I joined to market my art and did not relize I would meet so many wonderful ppl from all over the world. I love sharing my art with so many wonderful friends I have made here in sl.
"Art is my passion, and it is also my voice. The images I create may tell a story, reflect a mood, or just simply come to be, but my work is always motivated by my own experiences, feelings, and the world around me. Although I refer to my painting style as realism, I strive to paint using direct strokes of the brush, incorporating refined color tones, implied brush strokes, and subtle textures.
I am fascinated with the effects of light and shadow. Many of my paintings incorporate strong contrasts, shadow effects, or mystical effects captured by applying thin layers of color, one over the other. I enjoy listening to people as they view my work. Most comment on the soft color tones, and the quiet feeling of peace created in my images. Although I sometimes work in oil, my medium of choice is definately acrylic.
I still enjoy accepting commissions, as there is always a wonderfully interesting story behind each portrait or painting. It's very rewarding when my work is given as a gift, and is well received by the recipient. Creating a piece that touches someone and makes them happy is what makes my work as an artist so rewarding.
Art is not merely a project, craft or trade. It is an understanding of all that we take in and how we perceive it. It is about the soul. All of us have different perceptions, but we are connected by the universal ability to view something and take it into our soul, to make it our own. Therefore, "seeing" is only a tool by which we each perceive our reality. Art is a language we can all speak and it knows not the bounds or restrictions of our lives. Art is uncontrolled and breathing. Separate from us, yet it has the ability to become a part of us forever. As an artist, I am an interpreter. This is my goal, to understand, perceive, and touch your soul. I capture the moments in time we cherish and give them back to you in dreams on canvas"
Painting she is doing!

CHASE YOUR DREAMS RECORDS
Providing a path for up and coming Musicians in SL This is not a "we think we can", this is we will. We want to exceed all others here in SL but also in doing so, provide you with the most support as possible. We also plan to go into real life and show record labels what we are doing and use that base to stand on and possibly partner in with a real life record label. So not only do you have a chance to sign with a record label here in SL but possibly with a real life record label. We are also looking into set ups for Bands and this will be up soon we hope.
This month (July) Syl was interviewed, and a story done by Nu Vibez Magazine! Try to get a copy, its a great article of Syl and her work bridging Rl and Sl and more. I have copies I can distribute if needed. You will find her article on page 106. Good going Syl!
