LUCY is an illustrator in the most traditional sense of the word. Her intricate line work often nods to her fascination with the natural world.

She graduated from the University of Michigan with a BFA in 2011 and has been feverishly freelancing ever since. She has had the pleasure of working on many editorial projects with select publications such as TIME Magazine, Bon Appetit, and Outside Magazine. She has also had the opportunity to collaborate with Patagonia, Lagunitas Brewing Company, West Elm and several others. Her work often takes her beyond the printed page, collaborating with chefs and farmers, creating images for everything from apparel to home goods, and filling rooms with custom wallpapers. An illustration of Lucy's was even used as the blueprint for a corn maze.

Her work has been recognized by several organizations including The Society for Publication Designers and PRINT Magazine's 2017 New Visual Artists 15 under 30.

Lucy puts pen to paper surrounded by her growing collection of house plants in Pittsburgh, PA. She is easily tempted by the world outside her studio window and often prefers working amongst the trees and their inhabitants. 



And here she is with a whale skull on the beach in Oregon. 

It was a very exciting day.
