SYDNEY W. DURRETT
Born and raised in Cary, NC I developed a love for art as far back as I can remember. I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. Before moving to CLT I was working for a Southern Living Homebuilder as a designer living in the Triangle. It wasn’t until a turn of events and change of scenery that lead me to pursuing my passion for painting as a full-time career.
Moving to Charlotte less than a year ago, I have quickly fallen in love with the Queen City and all that it has to offer…in particular the art community! Its given me a new outlook on life which has inspired me to follow my dream as a female artist. With all of that being said, none of it would be possible without the support from you guys! Ya’ll are the reason local businesses like myself are here!
Majority of my work is done on either stretched canvas or canvas pad using an acrylic medium. Inspired by light, movement, surprising color combinations and texture, I try to collaborate these elements to form realistic-impressionistic compositions. I also do what I can to incorporate my love for interior design as part of the creative process. As you follow my journey you’ll see that I am forever learning and trying new techniques as well as subject matters. Hope you enjoy!
