A renaissance woman of the arts.
Silvia, also known as VIA™, is a renaissance woman of the arts. Besides her artistic talents, she has modeled her whole life and appeared in music videos as well as independent films. She has interviewed many celebrities such as Slim, the Grammy award winner from the R&B group 112, the former New England Patriot and now ESPN analyst, Teddy Brushci and many other professional athletes.

VIA™️ is also the Founder/President of One Way Treatment Inc, a 501C3 non-profit committed to prevent and educate against domestic violence and any form of abuse against young girls and women. She is a survivor of domestic violence and for five years from 2010 to 2015 she raised awareness and funds to help many women in shelters across New England. She has appeared in Urban Update, a local ABC Boston channel, and Global Grinda, an online news company owned by Russell Simmons who is a Forbes-listed pioneer of the music industry. VIA has been interviewed by many TV networks and has been a guest speaker at many colleges & shelters across America. After five years, she decided she no longer wanted to make domestic violence her career. She was missing something in her soul and wanted to get back to her first love - creating anything in the arts. She will however always advocate & educate against domestic violence. This will always be on her platform not just in America, but also in her native country Guatemala. In the future she hopes to start women shelters in Guatemala, the women desperately need the education and resources.
Silvia has since moved on from both Una-Via, LLC. and One Way Treatment Inc. to concentrate her vision and energy into Viasworld.
In 2014, VIA finally accumulated all her years of poetry, fashion designs and drawings to create VIASWORLD. Her artistic journey started with poetry. She was published at the age of 15 in a New York Times best selling book about adoption by Dr. Joyce Pavo. VIA was named top three best poets in the state of Massachusetts in high school, winning one of the Jack Kerouac best poet awards. As a musician, she has recorded over 30 songs and is a ghostwriter for other artists. She sings, raps, plays the guitar and the piano. In high school, she won the best dressed award and her love for fashion has continued to evolve Into fashion design. She consulted for many brands before starting her own. Current brands she owns are MOM™ (Money Over Men) and VIA (Very Important Artist) (Very Independent Artist). VIA™️ BLACK LABEL COLLECTION, VIA™️ARMY (FIGHTING FOR LOVE), VIA™️ DENIM.
VIA evolved from sketching and pastels to painting on clothes and canvas. She is a self-taught painter and her entry into painting started with Little Wayne’s drummer, YAYO (winner of an American Music Award, ten BET awards and five Grammy awards). In the summer of 2017, YAYO reached out to VIA and asked if she could make a custom vest for his performance at Jamn 94.5 Summer Jam. She had never painted on a jacket, but took the opportunity. He wore his VIA™ custom white vest in her home town in front of thousands while he performed on stage. From there she thought, if I can paint on jackets, I can paint on canvas. A year later she got her own studio in Lynn, MA and then had her first gallery viewing and fashion show in July, 2018. Since than VIA™️ has been featured as Art Basel artists. She was commissioned to be the lead artist/designer for three boutique hotels in Mass.
Charlesmark Boutique Hotel, Harborside Inn Boutique Hotel and Lounge & Surfside Inn in Chatham Mass. She not only custom created art, she also helped with the interior design remodeling for Harborside Inn. The list of professional athletes & celebrities grew for her custom design jackets.
Last but not least, VIA is a self-taught chef. Please look out for VIASKITCHEN on her VIALIFESTYLE blog for great food and unique conversations.
