I'm Lydia Fiedler, and I live in Austin, TX with my husband and two feline overlords - Maddie & Splotchy. My full-time job is as the Community Manager of Splitcoaststampers, where I've been for 11 years. I've been crafting for nearly 40 years, and stamping nearly that long as well. I work with a lot of stamp companies in that mythical thing called spare time - there's nothing I love more than seeing a new manufacturer thrive in our industry, and I try to contribute to success as much as I am able. My first art love is watercolor, but I also teach online courses in mixed media, gel printing and other techniques. My absolute favorite art form is humor, and I try to spread that and joy in my classes and in my work. I'm also a passionate gardener, cook, true crime podcast lover and a full-time meme lord.
