My story

She loves exploring multiple fields of the art some of which is digital, design and even the occasional sculpture! Whether it be with a new art style, mixed-media, or coloring style; with every creation, she strives for her next piece to be better than her last.

She is highly influenced by old illustrators like J.C Leyendecker, anime, and video games. Sydney is currently working on her project called Pan Atlas which she plans to turn into her very own video game.

WHAT DOES OTHELLOPHI STAND FOR?

“Othello” as in Othello from the famous tragedy created by William Shakespeare.

And “Phi”, the 21st letter of the greek alphabet, that also represents the golden ratio, the unity of one and the perfection found in everything.

She was originally attracted to the sound of the name and wasn’t even thinking on the possible meaning behind it. After someone brought it to her attention that “Othello” may bare a negative connotations, it gave her a cause to look deeper into it. After looking into both of the individual meanings, the name couldn’t have resonated with her more.

While Othello represents tragedy and despair, Phi acts as the rebirth and the perfection in every situation. Together it shows how one can transcend even the most difficult situations no matter what you have gone through.

The Phoenix that rests on the “O” in the logo is a reminder that after every struggle, after every hardship, one is bound to be rebirth in a new light.

To her it’s much more than just a pen name, but a life style she strives to live by.
