[picture of Lydia painting]

Lydia Kaeyer's watercolor paintings are her artistic interpretation of the Maine coast and South Carolina area representing realistic scenes of seascapes, lighthouses, and local marine facilities. Her works are all of local scenes, many painted 'plein air' depicting the Rockland, Spruce Head, Owls Head, Port Clyde, and Monhegan waterfront environs. I love the docks, working boatyards, local architecture, and coastal scenes using color and light to bring out tbe beauty of the surroundings.

Formerly a teacher in Westchester County, NY, Lydia studied art and art history at Wheaton College, Round Top Center and SUNY Purchase and has been greatly influenced by her watercolor teacher, David Dewey. Inspiration also comes from the work of Edward Hopper and Raul Rickert. "I grew up in Marblehead, MA with a father who was an illustrator for the Boston Sunday Post and a mother who was an architect so I guess it was a natural progression to take up painting when I moved to Maine. It has become my passion."

Exhibitions of her work have been held at Art of the Sea Gallery, The Port Clyde Gallery, Art Space Gallery, Sea Studio, Tenants Harbor, Thomaston Library, Bank of America, The Maine Art Gallery, Wiscasset and the North Haven Art Show. Lydia has won many local awards, most recently first prize for the professional category at the Maine Lobster Festival (2007) and first prize in water media at the Beaufort Art Association Show, South Carolina (2009 and 2010). Lydia is a signature member and prize winner of the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society and President of the Lakewood Ranch Art Group in Florida. Her work is also at the Samoset Resort and in many private collections.
