Collection: Artist Sylvia Leroux

Artist Sylvia Leroux at Ysleta Mission Gift Shop

Hi, I'm Sylvia Leroux, a retired social worker from Head Start with a background in Early Childhood Education. As a single mom, I chose social work for its flexibility. Art has been my passion since childhood, sparked by a fifth-grade teacher. I've integrated art into my work and shared creative ways for parents to teach at home. My jewelry-making journey began when a coworker admired my necklace and asked for a lanyard. Soon, I was crafting jewelry for many. It's been rewarding to see customers appreciate my work.
