Elise Noël Sydora was born in Houston, Texas. She has resided in a variety of North American cities including Houston, St. John's, Calgary, Berkeley and Chicago. Sydora works predominantly in the medium of mixed media.
A majority of her creative practice contains non-figurative, improvised gesture revealed through spontaneous mark making. In her work, Sydora seeks to blur the lines between complete abstraction and unadulterated symmetry and order.
Sydora completed her BFA with an emphasis in Painting and Drawing at School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013. She has participated in a variety of group exhibitions and her work is contained in numerous private collections throughout North America.
Sydora currently lives and works in Chicago, Illinois.
