Lydia received the award in recognition of her creativity and originality in exploring the relationship between landscape and human perception and especially the effects of form, colour and mapping.

Lydia will use the money to fund a trip to Iceland in July this year, where she hopes to draw inspiration from the dramatic volcanic landscapes, and to develop her skills in three-dimensional representation and sculpture, in readiness for her Final Year.

Lydia is no stranger to travel, having recently spent time in Japan and Austria, where she studied the relationship between form and function in the design of human landscapes.
