Sydney is a handweaver, creating unique, one-of-a-kind luxury wearable art and handed yarns. She draws inspiration from her years of studying art, ornithology, and marine biology. Each piece Sydney creates in her home studio pays tribute to a single creature’s unique beauty and story. To achieve this, she hand paints and dyes yarn that mimics the gorgeous colors found in birds and ocean creatures. Sydney then combines these colors with the complex, original patterns she design for her8, 16 and 24 shaft looms to create stunning accessories, cloth, and woven paintings. Each one tells a vivid, visual story from a distance that transforms into one full of luscious details when up close, similar to how magnificent animals colors and patterns change when viewed from a distance or up close. Sydney primarily works with Lyocell, an eco-friendly wood pulp yarn that is manufactured in a closed circuit loop, minimizing its environmental impact by reusing all water and using only non-toxic chemicals! Lyocell is a dream to dye, weave, and creates lightweight desirable wearables, and vibrant art pieces. Sydney also does custom work with clients to bring their textile dreams to life from woven paintings, to heirloom family textiles, yardage for cloth and clothing, and color matching dye work.
