About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog!

My name is Lucy and I am a freelance illustrator currently working from my studio in Cheltenham. I specialise in illustration for children, creating images from bright, clean gouache colours and experimenting with detail, character and narrative in my work. I graduated from University College Falmouth in 2009 with a BA (Hons) Illustration degree.
I am currently an in-house artist at the Deepspaceworks Art Centre in Cheltenham, where I work from a shared studio and take part in exhibitions and other creative projects.

After graduating in 2009, I became a part of the Gradgallery collective, formed by a group of Falmouth graduates looking for a way to work with other creatives and promote our work as a group. Gradgallery regularly organises successful exhibitions around the country to publicise our work.

I have worked on a number of freelance commissions for clients including Liberty Art Fabrics, Cambridge Univeristy Press and Scholastic. I am currently represented by Plum Pudding Illustration agency.
