Born in 1973, Lucy grew up in rural Somerset. She was always encouraged to draw and paint from an early age and was taken on regular trips to galleries and museums, which ignited her passion for art. Lucy is completely self-taught, having not taken the conventional route through education.
She paints mostly in acrylics and takes inspiration from everyday life - especially her three daughters. Domestic scenes feature regularly in her paintings, depicting a romanticised, gentler look at life.
Before September 2019, Lucy’s paintings were signed “L Howard”.
