The Paintings —

I grew up in a coastal town north of Boston. My Dad was a musician and music teacher. He also loved painting. My Mother had talent for gardening and creating beautiful cakes decorated with her own flowers from her garden. This creative environment enabled me to pursue my passion for art and painting. My time spent near the ocean is reflected in my interest in capturing the light and atmosphere of nature and water. My Mothers’ love of gardening is the inspiration to paint the beauty, color and movement of flowers.  I am also very drawn to themes of personal interactions that shape our identity. The nostalgic recognition of a family eating a meal together or sitting on the porch. Simple but powerful moments that are both relatable and personal. Whether I’m painting nature or people, my goal is to capture the mood and emotion of the setting. The beauty in that moment.

I received my BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

In 1991, I started a  mural and fine art  business that produced  large and small scale murals as well as custom paintings and art. I have had the pleasure of collaborating with many of the finest builders, architects and interior designers in the Boston area, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. My work has been featured in Boston Magazine Design Home and Better Homes and Gardens. It has been most gratifying to work with hundreds of wonderful homeowners to enhance their surroundings with my custom murals and paintings.

I also work with clients and designers to create commission artwork. Please contact me for information about the process or to purchase any available paintings on this site.

“Lydia Laskow's talent and deep understanding of architectural vernacular is clearly an added bonus to my architecture. Her murals greatly enhance the patina, character and theme of the interiors of my homes. A great welcome addition to our team.”

“Lydia is one of the most talented painters I have ever seen. I couldn't wait to hire her to do my kitchen after a recent renovation. I was thrilled with the result! She also did decorative painting in my master bedroom which pulled the entire room together. She is a wonderful combination of talent and professionalism.”

“My clients and I were so thrilled when Lydia completed three paintings for their living room. After searching for months, we knew we needed custom artwork. Lydia worked with us to insure that the sizes, colors and subject matter were exactly right. The paintings are perfect and exceeded my clients’ expectations!.”
