Artist Statement
My work focuses on the multiple layers of the complexity I observe around me. Each painting invites the observer to look closer beyond the dominant image through the layers of colour and impressions to reveal a deeper story. Family, friends, community, landscape and flowers are subjects that draw my attention.
Multi media allows me the freedom to use multiple transparent layers of collage materials that are relevant to the dominant image. Manipulating photographs, using stencils and acrylic glazes help to highlight or subdue parts of the painting. The process always takes time of personal meditation to make sure I capture the authentic stories I want to tell through my paintings.

Artist Bio
Lydia grew up in the cultural collage of Toronto. Dancing, singing, writing and drawing as a child developed her creative talents. Her creativity continued to evolve in her educational career of 42 years. After retiring, she enrolled in coursework at Sheridan College in Interior Decorating where she found the study of colour irresistible. This led to her journey into fine arts. Art courses throughout Ontario introduced her to a variety of painting techniques and media. She has participated in group art exhibits, art auctions and juried shows in Mississauga, Burlington and Dundas. She has been on the Board of Visual Arts Mississauga and is on the executive of the Burlington Fine Arts Association. Recently, she has illustrated her husband’s book, “Moments Near Life’s End”.
