About me

Lydia is a writer based in London. She graduated in 2015 with an MA in History of Art and Art World Practice, after spending two years studying through Christie’s auction house learning how to write about art and produce catalogue descriptions. Lydia has worked for art galleries, art fairs and creative agencies and has a strong understanding of the art world and market. From poetry to prose and copy to content, fitting words together is what makes her brain tingle. It is her obsession and compulsion. Having written for artists, galleries, brands, agencies and studios, her diverse writing ability is sure to give a voice to your creativity or company.
