Lucy is originally from Yorkshire; after Art College in Harrogate she left to study in London, then Manchester and in Cheltenham where she was Printmaking Fellow for a year. She settled in the South West twenty years ago and has been based in her Bristol studio since then.

Here she has developed her own particular brand of abstraction, which uses imagery from the landscape and her imagination. Her work is a visually rich mixture of drawing, collage and painting.

Her work is recognised nationally and has been included in The Jerwood Drawing Prize, The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition and The Summer Exhibition at The Royal Academy in London. In 2016 she was elected Academician at the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol.
