She then moved to London to attend The Royal College Of Art , later returning to live permanently in North Norfolk where she has worked as a full time artist with her husband Patrick for over twenty years. Lucy’s career was launched when she started working for Café Rouge as their ‘in house’ artist, providing over 100 sites in the U.K. with murals, paintings and designs. She then worked for Liberty and Osborne & Little, creating several collections of children’s wallpaper and fabrics. Lucy also illustrated a series of children’s books which were written by her mother and were published world wide.

Lucy also works for several charities including The Fairyland Trust, CPRE, The Mermaid Centre, West London Action For Children. She is also an ambassador for two regional charities E.A.C.H. and The Hamlet centre.
Lucy’s work has a timeless, childlike and magical feel that has built up a huge following over the years. She draws inspiration from childhood memories and daydreams. Worlds of make-believe and enchanted lands of fantasy are a recurring theme for her. Many of her paintings capture her love of nature and the wilderness, and her passion for enchanted places and buildings. She specialises in fairytale pictures for children’s nurseries, bespoke ‘House Portraits’ and landscapes with a magical twist.
