I am a scenic designer and visual artist based in the Minneapolis area. I enjoy collaborating with my colleagues to discover the perfect way to tell a visual story. The theater is special in that it engages audiences in a living art form, I enjoy being a part of that creation process. 

Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic I am taking on freelance illustration and art jobs and teaching private art lessons. For inquires check out my store or contact me through instagram @lydiafrancisdesign!
