Cottage crafts in the Lake District.
I am a portrait artist born in Singapore, now living in the Lake District, Cumbria. I have been painting for 30 years, specialising in Gouache, which is a material between water colours and oil. I also work in pastels and pencil.
During my time living in Cumbria I have developed a reputation within the Rural Community painting portraits of Horses, Gun Dogs, Birds of Prey, Goats, and many other Farm animals through to client's pets.
These portraits have evolved from a photograph taken either by ourselves or a favourite photograph of the client's choosing. This enables me to take commissions wordwide: in fact we have received commissions to date from Australia, France and Ireland.
I hope you enjoy the process on the right of a proffessional sheep shearing team in action and examples of my work on our web page Lydia's Gallery.
