About Lydia Gatzow


Hi! I’m Lydia Gatzow, a professional fine artist creating en plein air oil paintings of national parks that I’m visiting as I travel to some of the most beautiful places in the country. As a painter with a fine arts degree received from Pratt Institute of Art & Design, Brooklyn in 2015, I have dedicated my life to the pursuit of sublime beauty and the desire to create awareness around the importance of wilderness and sacred spaces, both within us and around us.


I left my gallery in the capital of Vermont in 2019 to move into a 1982 vw van with my boyfriend Charles, to travel throughout North America, and paint full time. My inspiration on the road is restorative and conserved wilderness projects. I hope to inspire you and offer deep connections to these treasured lands along my journey!


By joining this community, you will not only have access to exclusive painting demos and behind the scenes footage including GPS coordinates, but also limited edition giclee fine art prints of my paintings, and store discounts. I will also be generating tons of free content, so your donation will help me to keep generating posts. I hope to sustain my art practice while also have the ability to donate to the wilderness and re wilding efforts that I care so much about. Your support will help me with art supplies, artwork submission fees, frames, and travel expenses so that I can exhibit nationally. 

Thank you for being here 🙏

As an emerging artist, having at least 500 dollars in my account for as long as I’m on the road, will allow me to produce wilderness studies continuously, afford eco-friendly artist supplies (like biodegradable solvent and cadmium free pigments), and submit my work nationally and internationlly to juried exhibitions, residency opportunities, markets, and organizations (like Oil Painters of America) that will all help advance my career as a professional artist...thereby increasing the value of artworks you acquire from me.

Eventually I would love to create a body of large scale studio paintings based on work created from this plein air adventure.

 Every artist relies on a supportive community to keep creating, so I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me try to reach this goal!
