Whenever I visit Tamarindo, it is a MUST to stop by Lydia's shop! She is always inside with a big smile working on new handmade jewelry pieces or paintings. Everything in her store, from the gorgeous dresses to hand painted baby clothes is one of a kind and so sentimental. Lydia's gallery is fun to look around in and much... More

If you are looking for something unique, Lydia's store is the place to look. She hand-painted a shirt for me that we designed over the phone and it was beyond perfect!!!! I have bought several hand painted items from her in the past (that I was also happy with) but this was a very special item. I gave her a... More

Every time we hit the road for a vacation, we like to find something unique to display in our house; something that reminds us of the fun times abroad. Lydia Beech Art for the bill! Her little shop packs so many unique items, from jewelry, to clothing, to beautiful art paintings. We purchased a few items, but our favorite was... More

Be sure to stop into Lydia Beech Art for great jewelry that is handcrafted and very unusual. Lydia writes her own poetry that she puts on t shirts for all ages. She's a charming person.

I found a perfect gift in Lydia's shop - a beautiful miniature canvas of love birds silhouetted by the Tamarindo sunset. I wish I would have been able to transport a large canvas home! Lydia also does custom art... I look forward to being able to commission her! In addition to her talent, Lydia is just a lovely person to... More

There are many shops in Tamarindo but Lydia's is unique! Her artistic talent is displayed on clothing, earrings, and paintings. While we were in Tamarindo, our first grandchild was born. After discussing some options, Lydia created an adorable onesy for our future surfer baby. Thanks Lydia!

Lydia and I co created a shirt for me on Tuesday, and it was ready on Thursday. She is a talented, creative artist, and a nice woman. I highly recommend her work.

This a great place to pick up an original hand painted t-shirt for only a few dollars more than the mass produced shirts in the tourist shops. My wife picked up a shirt and then we bought a printed canvas of an original painting in the store. All the art work is done by the owner, Lydia. It took her... More

I asked Lydia to paint a picture for my friend, one of her dog, and she captured her(the dog´s) expression beautifully. And she did it in only a few hours!
