    ABOUT LYDIA

    "You must give birth to your images, they are the future waiting to be born." -- Rilke

     

    I discovered process painting in 2007 after decades of practicing residential architecture. I was transported by its immediacy, delighted by the opportunity to play freely and deeply moved by its power to engage my inner life. I believe that process painting is an antidote for rigidity and an opportunity to nourish our creative spirit. Through my life’s work, I’ve learned that no one is devoid of creative impulse, but we are often shy or afraid to give our desires life and form.

     

    I have a BA in studio arts and an MA in architecture. In 2016 I completed a three-year apprenticeship in facilitation with Stewart Cubley of the Painting Experience. As a facilitator, I am honored to be present with others as they discover their inner images, energies, and stories -- and I bring a deep love and respect for the artist that lives in each of us.
