This week we focused on reaching out to some local friends to highlight their services and business. Today’s feature is the talented Sydney Durrett, owner, artist, and creative mind behind Durrett Designs! I (Amanda) have been following Sydney’s pursuit of art and design ever since my early college days. Stemming from an art background myself, I enjoy watching Sidney’s journey in creating custom art and designs for local businesses, family and friends. Her collections feature cityscapes, skylines, spirit Animals and the newest of the new, Nudes! ⇒
Artist Sydney Durrett was born and raised in Cary, NC and attended East Carolina University, where she earned my Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. Before moving to CLT she was working for a Southern Living Homebuilder as a designer living in the Triangle. It wasn’t until a recent turn of events and change of scenery that lead me to pursuing my passion for painting as a full-time career. After moving to Charlotte less than a year ago, she has fallen in love with the Queen City and all that it has to offer…in particular the art community!
As you may see in her paintings Sydney is inspired by light, movement, surprising color combinations and texture. She intertwines these elements to form realistic-impressionistic compositions incorporating her love for interior design as part of the creative process.
In addition to the wide range of subject matters that she enjoys painting, Sydney also offers the option for custom artwork! Whether it’s a general idea you have or an exact picture to paint from, she will work with you every step of the way on sizes, colors and any other suggestions that she can offer! Beyond the canvas Sidney also designs and paints seasonal decor and crafts. She works with Lenny Brewing Company to create beautiful vibrant designs for their canned beer such as Dat, (Pale ale) & Citraphilia, (IPA). We’ve got more details below on where you can find Sydney at her next event and her online shop!
