Born and raised in Cary, NC Sydney developed a love for art as far back as she can remember. While earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design from East Carolina University, Sydney worked various jobs in the design field while simultaneously pursuing her passion for painting. While staying active in the community, Sydney has organically grown Durrett Designs from a fun passion into a full-time profession.

Durrett Designs is a product of Sydney’s free spirit and contemporary style. The majority of her work is done on either stretched canvas or canvas pad using an acrylic medium, though she does not shy away from experimenting with different surfaces and mediums. With the help of her paintbrush, Sydney pairs realistic subjects with contemporary flare and bold color combinations.

Originally known for her custom art and designs for local businesses and individuals, Sydney has expanded her art business into an e-commerce business ( where art fans can purchase her latest paintings and prints. With years of experience,  Sydney’s portfolio has grown to feature everything from cityscapes and skylines, to animals, landscapes, universities and abstracts. Sydney’s most recent passion project is a series of figure paintings. You can find more of her original works around Charlotte, NC in local breweries and boutiques.

As you follow her journey you’ll see that she is forever learning and trying new techniques as well as subject matters. Hope you enjoy!
