Sydney Atherton is a painter who was born and raised in Redlands, California. She started painting in 2009 while enrolled in the Art Program at California State University, San Bernardino and came to Riverside when she volunteered as a curator for the Saturation Art & Music Festival in 2011. Through this event, she made new contacts and started interning for the Riverside Arts Council. Sydney is currently interning for the Riverside Arts Council and has also been teaching art in the Arts & Minds Program to RUSD students in the H.E.A.R.T.S. after school program. Sydney primarily paints in oils but occasionally dabbles in acrylics, watercolor & permanent marker. Through her internship, Sydney hopes to acquire the knowledge that will allow her to pursue a career as an art curator. Sydney intends to enroll in Graduate School in the Fall of 2014 at California State University, Long Beach. Although her future goals include working at a museum, right now, Sydney is very enthusiastic about her new artistic ventures, which include these handmade headbands, as well as her other handmade goods, including: pillows and Jewelry.
