Born and raised in Paris France, Sylvia Mousseux immigrated to Arizona in 1983 at the age of 18 with her parents and two sisters.
Shortly after arriving in Phoenix, she was hired as an apprentice at a locally owned sign shop where she became a professional Sign Painter with the help of two wonderful tutors after five years of employment. In 1990, she graduated with honors and received an Associates degree in Commercial Art in Phoenix AZ all the while working full-time.
The same year Sylvia started her own Graphics & Signs shop called "Creative Sign Art" in Tempe, Arizona for a period of five years. She was then hired at the City of Scottsdale as a Traffic Sign Fabricator. After less than three years, she became a Traffic Engineering Technician, to be later on promoted as a Lead Traffic Engineering Technician.
Sylvia decided to retire early in March 2018 and follow her passion; painting.
