'‘’I use photography the way a painter uses a paint brush – to illustrate my visions and to create NZ themed works that are exciting, vibrant and uplifting.’’ Lucy studied at Auckland University and holds an Architecture Degree with photography being self-taught. Lucy’s panoramic NZ landscape photography is now complimented by her incredible mixed media 'digital fusions'. Ths boundary pushing medium involves layers of texture, drawing and painting. A method that uses today's technology to produce works that are enchanting, innovative and exciting. Lucy's works derive their content largely from photography but are processed in a way that makes them look more like mixed media or paintings. After 10 years working as an architect Lucy is now an interdisciplinary artist pursuing photography, design and art, based in Auckland. With both professions the fundamentals lie in composition, colour and detail. Her tropically themed NZ bird artworks really celebrate nature with many photographic pieces composed together to produce digital mixed media works that look like surreal paintings with flamboyant colours and lots of hidden detail.
