Lydia

Can you introduce yourself for us!? My name’s Lydia and I’m 24. I recently graduated from university with a First-Class Screenwriting degree and I’m currently a freelance writer, illustrator and embroiderer.

When did you first get into art and being creative? My Mum is an artist, so I’ve always been encouraged to do art since I was very, very small. I stopped for a little while after taking Art for GCSE because I hated it and it really put me off, but I started drawing again about a year after that because I couldn’t stay away.
