About Lydia Gatzow


Hi! I’m Lydia Gatzow, an EMERGING contemporary landscape painter creating outdoor oil paintings in Sedona, Arizona and other wild areas that I travel to. I'm originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but I've lived all over the country. 

My landscape paintings are energetic expressions and impressions of the sprawling wilderness and sacred spaces that surround me. 


After doing some soul searching and organic farming in Sweden, I decided to pursue art school in New York City. I graduated from PRATT INSTITUTE OF ART & DESIGN in 2015 with a BFA in painting and a double minor in art history and ceramics. Shortly after I relocated to Vermont, where I met my significant other and we lived "the yurt life" while working on an organic farm in the western foothills of Worcester, Vermont. I had dappled in painting outdoors during my last couple semesters in college, but it wasn't until living rurally in Vermont that I really started to engage in "plein air painting" more. After about 3 years on the farm we built out a 1982 blue Volkswagen vanagon bus and traveled the country. We went all the way across the states, up through Canada, and down the coast. I painted all the national parks that we visited while living on the road, and it was within that experience that I decided to begin exclusively painting outdoors. I had found the perfect marriage between my love of connecting deeply to the land and creating artwork!

We ended up in Sedona after visiting my dad in California. He suggested we check it out, as we were desperately looking for a nice and warm place to spend the winter and save up some money. It was storming when we drove through town so we had no idea what the landscape really looked like. We got jobs the very next day...and as the clouds parted revealing the majestic beauty of the red rocks, it became obvious that I could spend lifetimes painting here!

As fate would have it the lock down began shortly after we arrived here. So after almost 2 years of living in Sedona I feel like I am just starting to root into the local community and the southwestern art scene. So here I am, trying to establish myself and I would love your support. 


Starting July 2021, all of my content across my social media platforms will be posted HERE first. That way all of my time lapse videos that I post on YouTube, photos on FB/IG, press, exhibitions, workshops, blog posts, ect will be stream lined so that you can easily follow my journey. You will get an email every time I post. 

There will be a monthly check-in video for all members to let you know what I'm to and what I'm planning. 

Not only will I offer exclusive discounts for my Etsy shop, but I will also be posting any other sales HERE first, giving my patrons "first pick" with at least a week before releasing it to the public. 

Additionally, each tier is designed for the art collector or buyer. So the more you pledge monthly, the bigger the painting you will receive at the end of the required commitment. Several options will be emailed to you. There are other give-aways and special deals too- for prints, greeting cards, and art books. 

This is the right community for you if you'd like to collect my work or if you're simply interested in investing in me as an emerging artist. All pledges go directly to The Sedona Artist Market Gallery, art supplies, workshop and exhibition application fees, travel expenses, Sedona Arts Center membership, and all other art related/career development expenses. 

Your support also benefits the art institutions, venues, and other artists that I collaborate with.  

Thank you for being here 🙏
$115.07 of $200 per month
As an emerging artist, maintaining a budget of $200 monthly solely for art opportunities will help me to advance my career as a professional artist, thereby increasing the value of artworks you aquire from me, and make my artwork more accessible to the public. 

This will also help me with applications to national parks, so I can reach my goal of painting for wilderness conservation and environmental awareness. 

I'm almost half way there! Every monthly pledge helps with exhibition and application fees, so thanks so much for your support.
