Lucy Dickens

Lucy Dickens, great-great-granddaughter of Charles Dickens, began her career as a full-time artist in 1990. Having previously worked as a successful fashion stylist for Condé Nast, she became a freelance illustrator, working for publications including ‘The Financial Times’, ‘The Daily Telegraph’, ‘The Daily Mail’, ‘Vogue’, ‘Brides’, ‘Harpers and Queen’ and ‘Tatler’. She began to paint, while writing and illustrating a series of childrens’ books, which were successfully published in London and New York.

 

Lucy’s inspiration is drawn from her surroundings and the people she encounters. Armed with a small sketchbook she constantly observes and records the minutiae of everyday life. She is passionate about capturing and conveying the spontaneity of the scene before her. Her skill lies in the sharpness of her observation and her remarkable ability to endow each of her finished paintings with a sense of ‘narrative’. She brings her characters to life on the canvas and allows us an intriguing glimpse into their private worlds.

 

Her solo exhibitions include: The Belgrave Gallery, London (1995/96/97), The Osborne Studio Gallery, London (2001/03/05), Kooywood Gallery, Cardiff (2005/06) and the Fosse Gallery (1999/2002/04/06/08/11), Cricket Fine Art (2007).
