LUCY LUTYENS

After an early career as a specialist furniture painter Lucy trained at Colchester School of Art and then continued to learn sculptural techniques with sculptor Miles Robinson in Suffolk.

Lucy lives and works on an organic farm near Colchester and finds inspiration in the history of this medieval settlement. The surrounding landscape, found objects and the cyclical continuity and balance of nature have moulded her creativity for over thirty years and are key sources of inspiration, influencing the flowing sculptures which evolve into birdlike or botanical forms reduced to simpler, abstracted ideas. The work of contemporary sculptor Bridget McCrum inspires and informs Lucys work as does the work of Barbara Hepworth.
