Hi! I’m Lucy, a British illustrator living in Berlin for the last 6 years.
I originally trained as scenic painter for the theatre at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London, graduating with a BAHons in 2010.
Since then my career has taken me all over Europe, from running a recycled painted furniture business in the English countryside to living in Madrid and Berlin assisting two very talented artists.
Over the last few years, I have been developing my own style inspired by faces, botanicals and patterned tiles.
My work predominantly consists of black and white pencil drawings (both digitally and analog) with a hint of colour and some projects have included creating engaging illustrations for the front covers of popular Oooh Berlin City Guides, drawing promotional material for ethical lifestyle shop, based in London, and producing an array of designs and styles for my online store.
When I’m not drawing you‘ll find me trying to keep my two cats out of trouble, ogling at beautiful buildings in leafy Berlin neighbourhoods or probably buying ANOTHER plant in a garden center.
