Sylvia Stanton, Artist, Gallery Owner and Author, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in painting, jewelry appraisal, antiques, education and real estate.
Mrs. Stanton comes from a long line of women who have broken the mold. Her mother, Maria Delbert (Alfonso Swiber) Doucet, was one of her biggest influences. Her mother ran a jewelry store in the 1940s, which was uncommon during the time. Her mother raised her to believe she could do anything she set her mind to, and this belief has lasted with her throughout her entire life. Her love of art came when she was in kindergarten and was provided finger paints by the teacher. When it came to the brown finger paint she was unsure of what to do with it as first until an idea came. She made tall grass, soldiers and jeeps going through the grass and her teacher loved it so much she made her knock on all the doors of the school so that she could show off her artwork. From there, her lifelong love of art was cemented.
Mrs. Stanton has had her hands on many artistic ventures throughout her career. Early on, she started as a partner at Doucet’s Jewelry, holding this position from 1969 until 1982. She became the owner of Plantation Antiques in 1974 and developed the business until 1988. Also throughout the 1980s, Mrs. Stanton worked as a real estate agent for Century 21. In 1988, Mrs. Stanton came to be the owner of two different businesses, Magnolia Plantation and Doucet-Stanton Ltd. She worked in both of these enterprises until 1997. From 2001 until 2005, Mrs. Stanton owned and operated the Gallery at Milbrook. In addition, she remains a dedicated educator of the arts.
Mrs. Stanton’s art has been featured among exhibitions such as the Montserrat Gallery, Agora Gallery, Stanton Gallery, Maggie May’s and represented in permanent collections in the city of New Orleans. She is the author of “A Grandmother’s Happy Tales” which is sold on Amazon and in Barnes and Noble. In 1988, she received the title of nobility, Countess De Miro Delbert, in Greece. Throughout her career, she has maintained affiliation with the Albuquerque Art League, Le Cotillion in Slidell, Allied Artists of America, New Orleans Art Association, the Inner Wheel, Bayou Liberty Garden Club, Picayune Garden club and the Ozone Camellia Club.
