About Scenery Concepts:


Sylvia Pierce is founder and president of Scenery Concepts, Inc.  Begun in 2004, Scenery Concepts is a production management company serving national and international clients.   


The vision for Scenery Concepts grew out of Sylvia's desire to form a company that would successfully meet the requirements of the industry and would utilize her many years of professional experience.  Her design training, and experience as a scenic production carpenter, gave clear perspective as to how projects are designed, engineered, and constructed.  Her years in management gave her practical methods to implement that knowledge.
