ABOUT THE ARTIST

Lydia Larson was born in Pompton Plains, New Jersey in 1987. Growing up as an American nomad, art making was a means of documenting the constant changes of her surroundings. In May of 2009 she received her BFA from Montclair State University where she studied under Julie Heffernan, Alyssa Monks, and Peter Barnet. She received the Excellence in Painting Award of the 2009 graduating class.

In 2011, Lydia went on to receive her MFA from Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She has since been involved in residencies and research in the Netherlands, Italy, India, Hawaii, Japan, and Hungary. In 2014, she became a recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant.

Lydia has exhibited across the United States and Internationally. She lives and works in Westport, Connecticut.

Art and Nest

NEST

Art and Nest is a design studio established by artist Lydia Larson. Bridging the gap between fine art and functional design, Art and Nest is not only a brand, but an art-conscious relationship between studio and home. Each design is composed by hand with brush or pencil before becoming a final piece.

 

Specializing in custom design projects, fine art, handmade one-of-a-kind homewares, murals, and decorative painting, Art and Nest functions as the small batch of the design world. Created and thoughtfully curated, each piece and project is completed with your uniqueness in mind.
