It’s during her several stays in centres of artistic interest in Europe that Sissi Ceschi developed her passion for art. It first begun with painting on porcelain, then through restoring of old pictures it brought her to oil painting, particularly portraits, but also pastel, (red) charcoal and watercolours.


At Charles Cecil Academy in Florence, Sissi studied the techniques of old masters of the Renaissance. Through further practicing these techniques in Vienna with Austrian painters such as C. Fuchs, L. Brauer, F. Oesterlein and M. Schleinzer she steadily developed her own style.


It’s Sissi's priority, beyond the photographic likeness, to catch the spirit of the person and create a timeless portrait, not just the glimpse of an instant.
