Lucy is an oil painter based in north Hertfordshire. Having taken portrait commissions for many years, in 2012 an MA in Printmaking helped her to expand her practice.
Since her studies in Printmaking, alongside printmaking and portraits, Lucy has been making large gestural oil landscapes that fuse observations of nature with imagination and memory. Abstracted scenes of woods and skies, developed from sketches made outside, become stage sets for figures and storylines that she ‘sees’ within the fabric of the natural forms. Her recent work explores old master compositions and classical narratives – in particular the theme of metamorphosis and the male/female dynamic.
Lucy is currently exhibiting with Moorwood Fine Art in Bruton, AKA Contemporary in Cambridge and Linden Hall Studios in Deal. Past exhibitions include the Royal Society of Portraits Painters in 2003, Christie’s in 2005 with the Garrick Milne prize and Wells Art Contemporary in 2019. In 2021 she was longlisted for the Jackson’s Art Prize and became a semi-finalist in Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year, painting the singer Celeste.
