Lydia Marks

My 20 years of experience with decoration and design began with a passion for documentary photography. Critiques in art school made me aware of the power of interiors to tell a story. After a working in the photography departments of several museums, including The Museum of Modern Art in New York, I began to envision making my own stories, my own interiors. I became a set decorator for films, thoroughly enjoying taking the words from a script, the vision from a director and production designer, the character development from an actor, and distilling all that information into visuals that I could create to tell a story. My projects include Maniac, Sex and the City 1 and 2, The Devil Wears Prada, Money Monster, The Today Show and Broken Flowers. My most recent work on FX’s FOSSE/VERDON has earned an Emmy nomination this year.
