Sydney (Durrett) Falkner 

Born and raised in Cary, NC, Sydney developed a love for art as far back as she can remember. While earning a 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. Now based in Charlotte (NC), Sydney stays active in the community and 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 stretched canvas using an acrylic medium, though she does not shy away from experimenting with different surfaces and materials. With the help of her paintbrush, Sydney pairs realistic subjects with contemporary flare and unexpected color combinations!    

With years of experience sitting behind an easel, Sydney enjoys getting out of the studio and into the community. Whether it's an evening event of Live Painting or finding a fun passion project to be apart of, Sydney does not shy away from experimenting with new ideas, new collaborations and new experiences!    

Originally known for her custom artwork for individuals and local businesses, Durrett Designs has opened the doors to an online SHOP where art fans can purchase her latest original paintings and fine art prints. You can find more of her original works throughout the Carolina's and in select local galleries, 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!
