Toni Silber-Delerive attended Philadelphia College of Art and now lives in Manhattan, New York.
Her interest in graphic design developed as she came to realize that it shared many of the same elements as her paintings. Working at various New York design studios eventually led her to establish her own creative marketing communications firm, ToniDesign.
Her colorful and bold aerial landscapes show the world from a new perspective. By flattening the picture plane they reduce details to strong graphic images. Working through the lens of the camera, her paintings capture the moment and let the image tell a universal story about a place or experience. The strong shadows hint at a certain time of day, at the same time creating the feeling of a familiar but distant landscape.
Silber-Delerive still works for selected clients, but her main focus is painting. Her work is represented in private and corporate collections and has been featured in many exhibitions.
