Being an "Army brat,” Lydia was born in South Korea, with stints in Colorado, Maryland, and Germany, before her family finally settled back in Chicago - which has always been home. In 1998 she entered the American Academy of Art on a scholarship, initially, to study Advertising Design. However, on the advice of a beloved teacher, Lydia became a fine arts major, focusing on Life Drawing, and rounding out her collegiate career in Italy at the Florence Academy of Art.
