Syd earned her BFA magna cum laude from Cornish College of the Arts in 2013. She lives and works in Seattle, where she can be found surrounded by a library of fairy tales, comic books, and two fat cats.
"Syd Bee is a Seattle-based painter that creates figurative paintings that often appear to exist in a dreamlike state. Working in oils, the artist employs a technique of creating a pastel-hued glow around her subjects. Bee enjoys the way the soft outer edges of the paintings feel optically; which enhances the mysterious effect produced by her oil paintings." - Nathan Spoor, Hi-Fructose online
