Lucy Pittaway studied Art & Design at college, before taking a place at Northumbria University to read Graphic Design where she developed her skills in digital art, photography and mixed media.
After graduating Lucy took a gap year and ran her own business in creative crafts, before pursuing a career in Graphic Design. After two years as a Graphic Designer she was offered a teaching role at the college where she had previously studied- she claims to have learnt as much during that period as she did whilst she was a student! Like many teachers she was given generous holidays and spent as much of that time as possible drawing and creating canvases that were sold to various clientelle in the Uk and Europe.
As time progressed, Lucy came to the conclusion that she enjoyed creating her own paintings and drawings far more than teaching, so gave up teaching to pursue her lifetime passion to become an artist.
Lucy's work is divided into 2 categories:
The Houses Collection - a series of pastel drawings depicting her interpretation of the emotional roller-coaster of life, and our indivual journeys in the search for ourselves and our destinys. The Houses Collection are all triple mounted and framed, approx framed size 46cm x 78cm, Price £295
Ever-Changing Horizons -This collection was inspired by a period Lucy spent travelling around the world. During my time away she couldn't help but notice the wonderful creations of nature- the effects of a dark heavy sky on the surroundings or a beautiful burst of sunshine on a calm sea. She is always searching for images that convey this amazing world's often unappreciated beauty and her camera is ever ready to capture the perfect sunset or a stormy sky. Ever Changing Horizons are all triple mounted and framed, approx framed size 64cm x 78cm, Price £295.
