Lucy works as a freelance illustrator and as a freelance art tutor based in York in the North of England. She began her career with fashion illustration and she has since worked in design, in editorial and in publishing working with a wide range of clients both locally and nationally including Harpers & Queen, Junior Magazine, Paper House and Penguin Books. Her playful and colourful work has also been licensed for greeting cards, social stationery, textiles and children’s art.

In 2021 Lucy published her first book. Made By Hand At Home draws on her experience as an illustrator and as an art tutor and it celebrates the creative potential of everyday life. The book was written for parents, educators and anyone interested in the visual arts. Lucy is available for talks and workshops for both children and adults. Please do get in touch if you would like to stock her products or discuss illustration commissions, logo design work or licensing opportunities. It would be lovely to hear from you.
