History

Syd Webb graduated with a BFA in printmaking from Herron School of Art and Design in 2010. After earning her BFA she opened Wake Press & Gallery, her first endeavor at a custom print shop. During this time she worked as a studio assistant to Walter Knabe. Returning to academia, Syd earned her MFA degree from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2014. In 2012 she interned at the infamous Hatch Show Print in Nashville, TN. It was this experience that became the catalyst for Syd’s role in the entrepreneurial endeavor Wild Pony Editions on the UTA campus. She has taught at UTA and the University of North Texas, as well as hosted numerous letterpress workshops. Syd's shop 4 ACRE PRESS is now her full time gig. She works from her home studio in Kaufman, TX.

Aesthetics

Syd’s interested in the idea of contemporary homesteading.  She draws her imagery from an array of historical patriotic themes including the Victory Garden campaign. Syd is influenced by her rural setting and midwestern upbringing. Her folks also run a printing business from their home. The intersection of family, land and print is the basis for much of her work.
