Lydia Kramer, Seattle Wa Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement A native of Seattle, Washington, I began creating original art at an early age. After graduating from the University of WA with a BA in Art/Textile Design, I developed a unique textile based business that specialized in jewelry. Returning to school , I received an AAAS in Graphic Design from Shoreline CC in 1999. Studies and travels in Mexico and Spain have been an inspiring influence. Playing piano and electric keyboards, I also arranged, digitized and played the music for my Web Site: lk-graphic-design.com which showcases my original art and illustrations.
Combining traditional, fine art techniques with modern computer technology is a creative challenge I am continually exploring and developing. My strong sense of color, combined with textures creates a rich effect in all of my work. Watercolor, gauche, oil pastel, colored pencil, ink, oil and multimedia collage are some of the traditional medias I choose to work in.
I have shown my work locally and nationally, and have been featured in local and national publications, including television.
I work out of my design studio in Seattle.and am the founder and principal of LK Graphics Art Images, specializing in graphic art /design as well as multimedia and web development. Clients include non-profits, government, photographers, artists and small businesses.
