Syd lives near Seattle and received her BFA magna cum laude from Cornish College of the Arts. By day, she paints statues for a toy company, and by night she paints her daydreams. She enjoys poetry, horror movies, and songs about lost love.
“The paintings of Syd Bee possess the power of immediately tugging at our emotional core, before we even begin to interpret and unravel the narratives within. This power emanates from Bee’s masterful understanding of colour as a way of conveying atmosphere and creating moods that align directly with the psyche." - Tim Maclean, WOW X WOW
"Syd Bee is a Seattle-based painter whose work seems plucked directly from the dream world. Bee uses rich, rosy tones in much of her art while exploring somber themes and emotions, and the marriage of these opposing elements gives her pieces a surreal, otherworldly quality. This dichotomy invites the viewer to dive deep into her beautifully eerie art, exploring the story told in each piece." - Kindra Nikole, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine
