Lydia Smith is an artist living and working in Columbus, OH. Her interdisciplinary practice engages in themes of personal memory, collective grief, spirituality, and landscape by working with mapping methodology, alternative narrative construction, and ethnographic research. In 2015 she was awarded a Watson Fellowship which allowed her to spend a year traveling outside of the United States exploring how cemetery landscapes can reflect cultural attitudes towards death. She received her BA in Anthropology and Studio Art from Rice University in 2015 and is currently pursuing her MFA at The Ohio State University.
