Lucy studied graphic design and illustration at university and then began a career in animation as a puppet maker for Cosgrove Hall films, and television commercials during which time she was responsible for fabricating the Martians in the Tim Burton film 'Mars Attacks'.She soon trained as a puppet animator for Cosgrove Hall films in Manchester and animated on children’s television programmes such as Noddy, Postman Pat, Bob the Builder and Andy Pandy.
Whilst animating she took a short course in print making and discovered a passion for printmaking as an additional outlet for her creative mind alongside her animation work. She took a break from animation to start a family and found that she was able to devote more of my time to printmaking providing a good work / life balance while she had a young family. She learned techniques such as acid plate etching, collograph and screen printing. As her knowledge and enthusiasm grew she started to exhibit my work at various shows up and down the country on a regular basis.
