Lydia is a UK based, fine art, portraitist. Having grown up in a cross-cultural context, as a missionary kid in Southern Africa, Lydia is fascinated by people and their stories. It is this interest in narrative and storytelling that underpins her work, and she often seeks to spike the imagination of her viewers. Drawn to the female story in particular, she frequently photographs herself using costume and post-production to become the characters of the stories she tells. Her most recent work has drawn on her fascination with stories, particularly the female story, and her own personal faith, culminating in a project focusing on the significance and empowerment of women within the Bible.
