Lucy was born and lives near Wrexham, North Wales. She studied her A-levels (Art and Design, Biology and Psychology) at Ysgol Rhiwabon. After a long period of ill health, she graduated as a mature student in 2011 with a First-class Honours Degree in Creative Writing and Psychology from The Open University, Milton Keynes. Although she has always been interested in art, it is only relatively recently that she has started painting again on a regular basis. After joining some local community groups in both Creative Writing and Art and inspired by her grandmother, Lucy is now never happier than when she has a pencil or paintbrush in her hand! She particularly enjoys painting portraits of both people and animals, and is inspired by dreams and the mind. Lucy has exhibited her artwork in several galleries in her local area.
