Lucy’s bright and uplifting harbour scenes capture the essence of movement and light found on the stunning Jurassic Coast where she lives. Her painting style dances between expressionism and naive art and creates a peaceful and idyllic perspective on coastal life.
Her highly recognisable style blends delicate oceanic shades across her canvas with great subtlety and skill and her play on light, combined with her signature iridescence and texture, evokes a strong sense of airy spaciousness.
After achieving a distinction in Fine Art at foundation level, Lucy went on to graduate with a BA Honours degree from London’s Westminster University in 2002.
Since then her reputation as an artist has grown rapidly; her work is shown inhigh calibre galleries throughout the UK from London to St Ives, and she has received private commissions from around the world. She has also been an exhibitor at the Chelsea Flower Show, and as part of the BBC’s Arthouse Collection, much of her work has been selected for film and TV.
Lucy draws her inspiration from the magical and dramatic seasonal changes of the stunning landscape of her home. “I find nothing more inspirational than seeing the sun burst through after a downpour of rain.The light cascades in a rhythmic sparkle across the ground and the ocean gleams like liquid silver. It’s magical! I want people to feel uplifted by my paintings and be able to imagine themselves there, in that scene, if only for a moment. Once refreshed I return to my studio ready to pour my energy into a canvas”
