Lois Sykes was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As an art student in the states, she painted in a figurative style, then at Atelier Goetz in Paris her exposure to abstract painting led her in a different direction. Today, she combines the elements of figurative and abstract with animal subjects in a contemporary setting.

Sykes has said, “I often create a scene in my mind that pushes me further than just painting a dog or cat. There is a narrative lurking somewhere, a suggestion of a story.” Colour also features prominently in Sykes’ work as a signifier of mood and vitality. She aims to capture the idiosyncratic nature of the animal, usually with gentle humour.

Sykes has always been interested in animals and has drawn and painted them since childhood. Currently she lives on a smallholding in Surrey, England, with her husband and a special cat, as well as a plethora of chickens, ducks, horses, and ponies. They have all featured in her paintings as well as her neighbours’ sheep, pigs, and cattle.
