Lucy was born on the prairies and grew up loving the sun and the open sky. Making art was her favorite thing to do. She attended the University of Alberta and studied to become a dentist hoping that one day it would allow her to be able to follow her dream of being an artist. Her first job as a dentist was on Vancouver Island where she immediately found her true home. Surrounded by the wild spaces she discovered a vibrant arts community where her love of art was able to grow.
In 2000 Lucy left her dental career to follow her passion for making art and painting. Since then she has worked full time at finding and refining her voice in art. Always she has strived to make work that is unconventional and original, loving the challenge of learning new techniques and working in various genres. Ultimately her greatest interest had always been to develop her abstract work, to say something that has not yet been said with paint.
Studying with other artists at the university level as well as in many private workshops and studios, she has had many teachers and influences that have aided her development. Experimentation and exploration in the studio have brought her to where she is now, an award-winning artist with a unique and strong personal voice and style. Bold, colorful, and exuberant work is her offering to the world. A joyful celebration of life.
