Hi! I’m Lucy, a British illustrator living and working in Berlin.
I originally trained as scenic painter for theatre at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London, graduating 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 talented artists.
Over the last few years, I have been developing my own style inspired by people, botanicals and patterned tiles.
My work predominantly consists of black and white pencil drawings (both digitally and analog) with a splash of colour.
Recent 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 a series of pencil drawing commissions for a private yacht based in the Canaries.
When I’m not drawing you‘ll find me trying to keep my two cats out of trouble, admiring beautiful buildings in leafy Berlin neighbourhoods or resisting the urge to buy ANOTHER plant in a garden center.
