Sydney Lowe is both the founder of Art Girl Army and an artist in her own right. Art Girl Army is a collective that hosts events, meet-ups, panels, & showcases in Brooklyn and Los Angeles for women across a variety of artistic fields. In Lowe’s own work she takes both a supporting role as producer and jumps behind the camera with her photography.

Name: Sydney Lowe    ::    Occupation: Producer, photographer & cartographer of the human heart. Founder of the female art collective, Art Girl Army    ::    City: Los Angeles & Brooklyn

When you're not creating: I'm absorbing other art! I'm either reading (anything Junot DiazSandra CisnerosZadie SmithJumpha Lahiri or Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie!), crossing films off my "To-Watch" list (everyone please go see The FitsSworn Virgin , Divines and Netflix's Brazilian sci-fi drama The 3%), or talking with friends about the creative projects that they're working on.

Best work environment: Early morning, big table, colorful sharpies, journal (with no lined pages!), hot chocolate, lots of pretty light streaming through the window. Added bonus: tons of motivation, passion, optimism + a great playlist.  

To cope with a long commute: I listen to old episodes of my favorite podcast, The Three A-Negroes. I could listen to comedian Rae Sanni (one of the three hosts) say ANYTHING for 10 hours, and I'd probably be fine. She's so incredibly smart and funny and witty. Huge fan of the work that she's doing.

Why you love your city: I currently live in Los Angeles, but I grew up in New York City all my life, particularly in Queens. It's one of THE most diverse places on the planet (google it), and growing up surrounded by so many different types of people who see and experience the world through different lenses than I do, shaped who I am today at my core. I'm really, really grateful for it. 

End of the day unwind: Watching Chopped while I cook new recipes that I see on Chopped. Big Chopped fan over here. 

What's next: Producing more videos, more films and making more art.

Ladies we should know: Rae Sanni (comedian), Caroline Kaufman (fashion & textile designer!), Sam Bailey (filmmaker), Esther Fan & Olivia Park of SAD ASIAN GIRLS, and Tiffany Mallery (illustrator)
