Lydia Beamish is an artist from the Latrobe Valley in Victoria.
Working predominantly in pen, ink and digital, Lydia creates whimsical characters and colourful pieces inspired by popular culture, kawaii fashion and vintage toys.
Lydia enjoys designing textiles, zines plushies featuring her original illustrations.
Lydia originally studied fashion and textiles and went on to create her own label called Chubby Turtle featuring garments hand screenprinted with her illustrations. After some small success, Chubby Turtle finished up in 2015 and Lydia decided to focus more on her art and developing her personal style.
Lydia's work has been featured in Louis Joel Gallery's 'It's ART:WEAR IT' exhibitions and Six Years Later magazine's Issue 3: Instinct. She also enjoys being a part of exhibits for her local theatre company MoArtz.
