Working in both oil and pastel, Lydia paints both impressionistic landscapes and figurative works that explore the interplay of light and color in the natural world.  A passionate explorer, she often backpacks with her painting gear to capture the effects of light and atmosphere in the outdoors.   


The late Elizabeth Mowrey, author and Master Pastelist from the Pastel Society of America,  continues to influence both her approach and attitude toward painting nature and capturing the magic within.


Lydia is a Signature member of the Pastel Society of Colorado and a member of the Oil Painters of America. Her work is held in private collections throughout the US.
