Lydia Hess creates graphic montage images combining her colorful mono-prints, pen and ink scratchboard carvings, and antique engravings. She enjoys working on many different aspects of the creative process, including art directing, picture editing, designing, and illustrating. She currently does all of the above at Amber Lotus Publishing and loves the diversity and the opportunity to collaborate with other artists and image makers. Hess has recently completed two coloring books with HarperElixir, an imprint of Harper Collins publishing. She is thrilled to have these available to purchase here on the Amber Lotus website.
