Lydia Hughes is an Irish illustrator and designer based in Westport, Co. Mayo.
She graduated with a BA in Visual Communication from Herefordshire College of Arts and practised as a visual designer in the UK, Canada and Ireland before going on to complete an MA in Illustration with the University of Hertfordshire.
Her work is characterised by flat, minimal, geometric shapes, reflecting a longstanding love of mid-century aesthetics, traditional printmaking processes and a background in graphic design. She harnesses calm colours and warm textures to deliver simple visual character narratives that feel inclusive and friendly yet polished and sophisticated.
Lydia is a proud member of Illustrators Ireland and the Association of Illustrators.
