Lydia loves telling stories and although she may not write books, she uses her images in order to create and share her stories. An image can be appreciated for its beauty, but it can also tell a story, provoking memories and emotions. As the artistic director of Gecko theatre company Amit Lahav once said, “beautiful does not necessarily mean pretty. We might explore how ugly a person can be, and that in itself can be a beautiful thing to see”. Although referring to a piece of theatre, Lahav’s comment is also applicable to all forms of visual communication. Lydia is excited by what the future holds and hopes that she can continue to tell stories, illustrate issues, promote ideas and move hearts, minds and imaginations through her work.
