Lucy Wayne is a London born artist, working from life in watercolour and ink to produce simple and delicate paintings of flowers and plants. She works directly in colour without the use of pencil, in this way, the compositions unfold in sometimes unexpected ways, often travelling off the page.
Lucy’s paintings; spontaneous yet precise are infused by her love of nature. Intensely looking in awe and appreciation at the colours and contours of botanical forms, she sees these living subjects not as “still life” but in a state of constant movement and change. She loves to observe the seasons and also the passing of time through her paintings. A collection of dried flowers in Lucy’s studio are a continued source of inspiration for her and they appear repeatedly in her work. Fascinated by the curved stems and unusual colours which develop as the flowers begin to dry and fade, Lucy explores ideas such as the beauty of imperfection and the memories of people and places that flowers can evoke.
Lucy has been exhibiting in the UK, and has work held in private collections in the UK, Europe, Australia, Asia, South America and USA.
