Lydia Gee creates original paintings encrusted with Swarovski® crystals. Her art has been enthusiastically welcomed by art collectors, with paintings being ordered by both private clients as well as art investors, galleries and trendy hotels and restaurants. Lydia works mainly with acrylics on canvas, encrusted with original Swarovski® crystals and various types of glitter. On request, she also incorporates other luxury materials such as gold flakes or gemstones (sapphires, diamonds…) in her art pieces. Lydia currently lives in the lovely Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in Europe. Before that, she had moved around the world, living, working and traveling in many countries in North America, Europe and Asia.
“I came up with an idea of creating original acrylic paintings embellished with Swarovski® crystals and glitter and since then I am totally in love with this concept. Art and Swarovski® crystals go so well together, they make your interior unique, sparkly and very glamorous. I love creating and I am so grateful I can follow my passion and make my clients smile. My dream is to make everyone who looks at my art realise that we are all unique and beautiful in our own ways. We should be proud of ourselves and cherish our own uniqueness. I believe symbols of natural perfection such as peacocks or orchids convey this message well. The motto of my art is “let your interior shine” because I believe we all deserve to sparkle.
I work from my atelier in Luxembourg . I am very lucky to have a lovely place with floor-to-ceiling windows that let in tons of light, so crucial for my technique using Swarovski® crystals, glitter and metallic paints. When I started my studio some years ago I was very nervous whether an artist from a small country in Europe (proudly called ‘the Grand Duchy’ though;)) would be accepted on a predominantly US-focused marketplace. Luckily, my initial fear has proven completely unjustified: I have had an amazing response from all over the world. These days my art is in homes and offices in most American states, as well as in countries from UK to Australia to The Netherlands to Puerto Rico, to name just a few. I have been truly blessed to have only lovely, friendly clients. They often send me thank you notes and photos of my art in their living rooms, bedrooms, offices… I have even created unique golden pieces for the owner of a stunning castle!”
