Lydia Neuman is an artist and writer who divides her time between New Mexico and Texas. Originally from New York City, she has not yet made the transition from "you guys" to "y'all." Lydia has worked as a textile designer, a production glassblower and weaver, a technical writer and editor, and in various soul-crushing cubicle jobs. She has taught Color Theory, American Literature, Applied Statistics, and Driver's Ed (in Maine, in the winter). Lydia has a master's in Textile Technology and Cultural Studies from UT Austin, and bachelor's degrees in Printmaking from RISD and English from Bucknell. Her skills include tetrachromatic color vision (unverified), parallel parking, giftwrapping, and a savant-like ability to eyeball measurements. Lydia lives with her partner, Tim, a mechanical engineer, and a Cardigan Welsh Corgi named Temoku, whose vocation has yet to be determined.
