My name is Lydia Dany Sutton. I was born and raised in Daufenbach a small town in the Eifel region of Germany. I started my art career as an apprentice to the famous Photographer/Painter Heinrich Haas, in the nearby city of Trier. After graduating from Photography school I worked for several years as a professional Photographer. Then my life took a different turn. I married, had a family and basically followed my husband around the world. I lived all over Europe and the United States and currently reside in the state of Washington. During my travels I had the opportunity to study painting with many wonderful masters. I was trained in the classical approach, but my style tends towards impressionism. I strive to capture the excitement of discovering something new or rediscovering something long forgotten. My preferred medium is usually Oil, but I am not locked into any one medium or subject. I have maintained a life-long interest in the ways of other cultures. The indigenous people and animals frequently show up in my work.
There is no end to the joy of painting.
Above all painting means to be yourself,
To be free, to be physical,
To be as passionate as possible.
Color and light, what can be more beautiful!
