Sydney is a 19-year old autistic woman and artist. Her main medium is digital composition. She creates novel pieces that often combine both illustrative and photographic elements. She also likes to add inspiring and thought-provoking text to her compositions. These short phrases, such as “growth is a mindset” or “life is a gift” are reminders that have helped her when struggling with her mental health, so she wants to send these messages out into the world to hopefully help someone else as well. In addition to digital design, she also does pyrography (branding designs into wood with a hot metal instrument) on occasion. You can find her on Instagram @thatawkwardhipster68.
