Lucy Eglington

Lucy's paintings often have a darkly fairy tale like quality. This, combined with a love of Renaissance painting and techniques, results in work that is both rich in detail and narrative.

She is chiefly interested in the area where our conscious and subconscious worlds collide - the stories we create for ourselves, the lines between sleep and death, and dreams and hope - and where these define us as human. She often uses animals allegorically in her work to represent the various facets of our personalities and the human condition.

Lucy also enjoys portraiture, having previously been a finalist in the Adam Portrait Awards, and loves to work on commission.
