ABOUT LYDIA MARIE ELIZABETH
As a child, I always had a pen or pencil in my hand, and there were countless books and photos ruined by my scribbles of girls and horses and dogs. My parents immediately channeled my scribbles to art classes, and my cousin taught me oil painting by the strawberry bushes in her backyard in Connecticut. I always loved art, because I was challenged to paint what I saw, not what I knew.
While studying Interior Design at Drexel University I learned the fundamental principles of Design and my imagination was captured by my Interior Rendering courses. I was inspired by the illustrations of Florence Knoll and now believe that hand depictions speak to the soul in a way that computer generated images can never accomplish.
Upon receiving my degree, I moved to Greenwich, Connecticut and worked at a high end Architecture firm developing hospitality and residential designs. While in love with creating new spaces and the challenges of making something new and exciting for our clients, I found myself missing my studio art and interior rendering courses.
I established my brand in 2013 based on my love for fine art, interiors, and architecture. My work primarily is influenced by the trends set in interior design and decorating, classical architecture and a tad from the world of fashion.
I work in pen, ink, and watercolor on paper. I currently work from my home studio in Philadelphia and accept commissions of all types and sizes of art and illustration.
