Born in Swansea and raised in Pembrokeshire, Lucy’s work has a strong sense of place, rooted in the wild landscapes of west Wales. Her interest in Celtic folklore was ignited by a curiosity in Welsh identity, and how these stories might contribute and re-enforce a connection, encouraging a feeling of belonging.
Since graduating with a degree in Illustration from Southampton Solent, Lucy's illustrations have been published in the book Hiraeth: Stories from Welsh Patagonia by Steph Davies, a factual book about the Welsh colony in South America. In that same year she was approached to illustrate interpretive panels for Cardigan Castle as it underwent a dramatic restoration.
Lucy has exhibited her illustrations in galleries across Wales – namely 'Imaginary Worlds' at Oriel Davies, Newtown, a group illustration show at Umbrella Cardiff, and 'Hanes: Tales, Stories, Legends & Myths' at Aberystwyth Arts Centre.
In February 2022, Lucy exhibited a collection of her illustrations in a solo show titled 'Hounds of Folklore' at Canfas gallery in Cardigan. She then went on to participate in the group exhibition 'Straeon Eryri / Snowdonia Stories' at Oriel Ty Meirion.
In January 2023, Lucy completed her Masters in Illustration from Falmouth University, passing with a Distinction. Her practice is evolving with a deeper interest in the folklore of other nations and cultures, the migration of these stories and the evolution of their characters and symbolism over time.
