Ydi was born in 1990, one of three children to a reformed minister couple, serving the Uniting Reformed Church in its political transition between 1982 – 2017.
Ydi showed an interest in the arts from a young age. She matriculated from Stellenbosch High School and studied Fine arts at Stellenbosch University, completing a Masters degree in painting.
After a period of mistrust in the faith of her youth and a visit to L’Abri in England, she has returned to Christianity, and now enjoys making art that addresses Christian issues, themes and narratives.
