Sydnie Jimenez was born in Orlando, FL but spent most of her childhood in north Georgia from which she draws much inspiration. She recently graduated from SAIC (BFA 2020) focusing in ceramic sculpture and is a recipient of the Windgate Fellowship (2020). Much of her work centers around the representation of black/ brown youth and self-expression as a form of protest, self care, and power within community.
