About Lucy Dove Wright
1996 Chelsea College of Art, London, Foundation in Art and Design
1998- 2001 Falmouth college of Art and Design, BA (Hons) Studio Ceramics
Cornish Artist, Lucy, studied at the Falmouth College of Art where she gained a BA (hons) in Studio Ceramics. For several years she worked within this discipline producing hand built stoneware vessels. An increasing interest in drawing and painting became a more predominant influence within her work and gradually moving way from clay to canvas Lucy began experimenting with various mediums to eventually develop a more direct method of working.
Concentrating on landscapes and seascapes, Lucy uses acrylics, oils and oil pastels, building up layers to create texture, then scratching and mark making the canvas surface, abstracting the scene until a satisfactory mood emerges through the paint. Having lived near the sea for most of her life a sensitivity to the environment and her affection for the Cornish coast continues to inspire and motivate her as she meets the challenges of painting a changing, evolving Cornwall.
