RealArt DeRidder is excited to present our Artist of the Month for August
A native of Lake Charles and current resident of DeRidder, Lydia has always been fond of art, even from an early age. While learning to draw, her early years were influenced by her sister and art education at Barbe High School.
“Many artistic techniques and abilities that I learned and acquired at Barbe are some I still use to this day.”
Through the years, Lydia has been commissioned for pieces and murals, entered competitions, and received awards for her works of art. Art has always been enjoyable for Lydia.
"If any of my pieces bring joy to viewers, then my artistic goal has truly been accomplished."
Parking is never easy at and around the gallery, located just South of Cecil’s restaurant in the same block, so be prepared to park around the corner on Washington Street.
