Born and raised in Athens in 1974, Lydia studied mechanical engineering in Athens, completed her studies in business administration and chartered accountancy in London and now works in banking in Athens. Her day jobs offered limited opportunities to satisfy her need for creativity, thus leading her, after a two year experimenting with weaving, to the world of mosaics in 2001 which she instantly loved and has focused since. She has followed courses at “Psifidon Gnosis” mosaic school in Athens since 2002 and has performed both ancient and contemporary designs. She is a member of the AIMC and a founder member of the Hellenic Mosaic Association (HMC). She likes to work mainly with marble and stones and is currently experimenting with plain designs and forms.
