About Me

Graduating from Siena Heights College, MI with a BFA, Lucy worked for Hallmark Cards over three years. Later she became a freelance fantasy artist, exhibiting her art and creating illustrations published in the U.S. and Europe, including the cover for Andre Nortonís book Wizardís Worlds. For over a decade, Lucy worked first at Chase Studio in MO, and then at Taylor Studios in IL, where she painted murals and illustrations for Natural History museums and nature centers. Lucy has become proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign. She moved to Chicago in 2015 to work full-time as an illustrator. Laid off in April 2017, Lucy is now looking for exciting new directions in her career.
