Hello, I'm Lucy an animal artist

Bio

After University I worked for 6 years as a Product Designer, then in 2002 I started up my own business hiring out costumes… I have about 1000 costumes in my house! I have been painting regularly since 2005 and have been hugely inspired and influenced by other artists on Instagram. There I joined the ‘daily painting’ movement – painting small and often, recently specialising in painting animals ‘alla prima’ in oil paint. I am aiming to produce a piece of art that not only captures the essence of the animal but is also full of character and colour.

I love painting features! Eyes, noses, paws, whiskers – so much fun to be had!  I also enjoy experimenting with different backgrounds and love to have the freedom take the painting off in an unusual direction – the background is the easiest place to have a bit of fun with it!

A good composition and the freedom to experiment with colour and brush marks is what inspires me most.
