Lacey Bryant was born in Louisville, KY and raised in the SF Bay Area. She was homeschooled as a child and spent most of her time making artwork, reading and creating elaborate games of make-believe with her younger brother. She finds inspiration in the natural environment of California as well as with the faded Victorian houses and the various forgotten treasures she discovers walking around in the city, suburbs and country.
Combining many disparate parts, she creates surreal narrative vignettes with anachronistic elements in brushy and deliberate oil paint. She uses repeating motifs to symbolize contrasting dichotomies such as connection and isolation, decay and growth, life and death.
