It isn't the mind that creates beautiful work it's the soul.

Artist Statement

I’m Lydia, a visual artist working and living in Duisburg,Germany.

Creating something completely new from deconstructed images, letters and prints, is an ongoing intuitive visual experiment for me.

The source materials for my collages and artist books are found paper, vintage paper, monoprints, and all kinds of homemade decorated paper.

I’m inspired by the material itself and I ask myself: “How can I connect the pieces?”

Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and recycle things.

To have an intuitive approach, I like to work spontaneously and try to avoid overthinking.
I like to work with different materials but paper is one of my favorite materials to work with.
