About Me

Hi there,

I’m Lydia Chu and I’m the founder of Thoughtful Wanders. I’m an artist, writer, and creator who gravitates towards digging deep and asking big questions about the self, life, and the world. With an endless curiosity, a hyperactive brain and imagination, and a tendency for big-picture thinking and connecting the dots, my inquiries range from the existential to the societal to the personal and random. 

I’ve decided from a young age I want to spend my limited time on this earth to do meaningful work and create what I feel called to make. Many of my interests have intersected to the birthing of Thoughtful Wanders (Read “About Thoughtful Wanders”). There is so much to learn, unlearn, contemplate, inquire, explore, create, imagine and connect about… I’m determined to pour my energy into doing just that for as long as I can ;- ) ideally, along with others who want to do the same! (want to work with me?)

INSERT COMIC ABOUT MY EXISTENTIAL SELF & MEANING OF LIFE + CONNECT W OTHERS AS WE JUST ENJOY OUR EXISTENCE AND THINK A LOT ABOUT THINGS AND MAKE THINGS JUST BC WE CAN 

Through my work, I hope to cultivate spaces that prioritize creativity, play, and healing hand in hand with critical thinking, nuance and learning. My aim is to reconnect with the childlike experience of awe, wonder, curiosity, and joy while striving towards thinking that is beyond binaries, labels, and boxes.
