She is also one of the founders of the Administration Police Rugby Team, currently deployed at the Security of Government Buildings (SGB) Unit.
The gifted fine artist and graphic designer was enlisted in the National Police Service and graduated as a Police Constable. She was posted to Nandi South (Kenya’s Rift Valley) and performed her duties exceptionally well.
Later, PC Sylvia was deployed to the National Police College – Embakasi ‘A’ Campus, formerly known as Administration Police Training College (APTC) where she worked as a trainer.
She holds a Diploma in Interior Design from Buruburu Institute of Fine Arts and another Diploma in Graphic Design from a premier institution, Africa Digital Media Institute. She is a celebrated alumna of Sacred Heart Mukumu Girls High School.
An outstanding artist, Ms Sylvia Amuguni discovered her rare inborn talent while still in primary school. She nurtured her talent through high school and later perfected her artistic skills in tertiary institutions earning two diplomas. She has demonstrated an uncanny ability to immortalize people and events through her brilliant creativity.
The talented police officer specializes in portrait and nature drawings. She is known to use her knowledge and techniques to create high-quality artwork that has been presented to several dignitaries including the Inspector General of Police and H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta who received his prized portrait during the 2016 recruits passing out parade.
Ms Sylvia Amuguni is determined and focused on sharpening her artistic skills and gunning for the status of the most sought-after Portrait and Nature Artist. She plans to establish an Art School that will impart her undeniable natural talent to upcoming artists, particularly the less privileged and the gifted in society.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
