Stephanie Sydney was born and raised in London, England. She moved to California with her family as a teenager and is currently living in Venice, California. She studied art at Santa Monica College and UCLA. She started receiving awards for her art while in high school and in the galleries at Santa Monica College. While Stephanie was a painter from a very young age, she started exploring painting with a camera, and photography became her passion, taking first double and triple exposures in the camera, then mixed media pieces and digital collages. She collects images in a variety of series including urban still lifes, street photography and abstractions.
She is currently working in her art studio in Santa Monica. Her work is in several collections, including Banque BNP Paribais and Morgan Stanley in New York where they have 13 of her images. She has been featured on “Your Daily Photograph” and Lenscratch, widely distributed email subscriptions and blogs on photography.
