About Lydia Thompson
“I like what I am drawing and think it looks cool. I draw hearts because it is a sign of love. Sometimes I draw a portrait of me. I like showing my drawings to people because I made them by hand, and I feel proud of myself that I’ve made lots of progress. I have confidence that I can do it.” – LT
Lydia has developed a distinctive style of methodical, densely layered mark, which she uses to create compositions that feature bold color combinations. In addition to her signature heart patterns, she is famous for her tongue-in-cheek depictions of friends and family members as cats. In 2016, she began a collaboration with artist and designer Tim Eads to create a series of custom heart printed bags, currently sold at stadler-Kahn in Rittenhouse Square. Lydia lives with her family in Wynnewood, PA.
