Lydia Morris has been creating since her earliest memory. Emphasizing investigation and experimentation, Lydia enables students to build mastery and confidence by creating what they imagine in various media. She is inspired to help students build things that move, to actualize their imagined inventions, and to draw inspiration from careful observation from life.
