Lucy first came to Norfolk to study at the Norwich School of Art. She then went on to do a postgraduate at The Royal College of Art in London. She later returned permanently to North Norfolk where she has worked as a full-time artist, illustrator and designer for over 20 years.
Lucy specialises in creating unique magical pictures with a naïve and childlike charm. She has worked on many one-off commissions for private clients and has also been commissioned by Chatsworth, Kew Gardens, Virgin and Sugar Beach Hotel in St Lucia to produce paintings for them. She has exhibited widely and for the last five years she has been invited to Japan to show her paintings at the British Fair.
Lucy has also worked as a freelance designer and illustrator working on a varied range of projects creating images for cards, prints, fabrics and products. Clients have included Café Rouge, Osborne and Little, Liberty, Boots, Susie Watson Designs, The Fairyland Trust, Art Angels, GMTV, Habitat and Amnesty International. Lucy has also illustrated a successful range of children’s books written by her mother Meg, which have sold worldwide.
Having run her business with her husband for many years, they recently formed a new company with three business creatives, to help them manage the commercial aspects of their work. In May of this year they launched their own branded range of cards, prints, mugs, note books and tote bags.
