EDWARD MONTGOMERY FINE ART
JACK MEIER GALLERY
Santa Barbara, California

Sydney was born in Washington, DC and was raised in Virginia. Her childhood consisted of forays in her parents flower beds and garden as well as assisting her mother in creating a plethora of quilts for various charities. A professional artist for over twenty years, Sydney’s paintings, either still-life or landscape, are about bringing the kaleidoscopic moments of what surrounds us into focus.
Living in California, Sydney concentrates on painting and teaching. Her core students have autism. Each class is opened with a quote from Russian painter Sergei Bongart- “there is no one just like you, and there never will be anyone just like you, so there is no reason not to be original.” The classes highlight their abilities rather than their disabilities. Her paintings are represented nationally and can be found as far abroad as France.
