Lucy Brown is a British artist, currently working as a designer and illustrator in England. Having lived in the United States for over ten years as a costume designer her creative voice has evolved through works on paper and vellum.
In her recent illustrations, Lucy uses her design experience to portray character and stories, which is at the heart of all her work. Her hand drawn illustrations use a realistic rendering style whilst offering a sense of whimsy and sensitivity to the visual narrative. Together her exploration of animals and humans is an attempt at understanding the complexities between the natural world and human nature.
Combined with her traditional illustrative skills and love for colour and texture, Lucy's visual poetics evoke and enchant. Her work can be gently laced with humour, other times slow and reminiscent, and sometimes haunting. The end result is detailed works with unique charm.
