Lydia Larson was born in Pompton Plains, New Jersey in 1987. Growing up as an American nomad, art making was a means of documenting the constant changes of her surroundings. In May of 2009 she received her BFA from Montclair State University where she studied under Julie Heffernan, Alyssa Monks, and Peter Barnet.

In 2011, Lydia went on to receive her MFA from Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She has since been involved in residencies and research in the Netherlands, Italy, India, Hawaii, Japan, and Hungary. In 2014, she became a recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant.

Lydia has exhibited across the United States and Internationally. Her studio is in Norwalk, Connecticut.
