She studied in Edmonton at the University of Alberta, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1967, before moving on to the University of Calgary, where she earned a Bachelor degree in Social Work in 1974.

In the early 1980s, Oldring Sydiaha coordinated exhibitions and seminars through Saskatoon's Shoestring Gallery, where she also held her first solo exhibition in 1981. Her acrylic paintings, drawings, and collage work have been shown in Saskatchewan and elsewhere in Canada, and are in the permanent collections of SaskTel and the Saskatchewan Arts Board.
