Lydia Corbett

Baptism in Vallauris

Lydia Corbett lives in South Devon and is a painter and ceramicist.

Her main body of work comprises of watercolours with pen and Indian ink, which depict her entire life. Lydia’s style has often been likened to that of Chagall.

As a child she grew up free on a naturist island off the southern coast of France. Her mother and father were both reputable painters: this upbringing, and her chance meeting with Pablo Picasso are all factors influencing Lydia Corbett’s work. Latterly her style has changed with her age. Now 84 she paints predominantly in oils, in a bold and striking manner.
