Lucy completed her foundation at Camberwell College of Arts before achieving a first class Ba(Hons) in Fine Art at the University of East London. Since graduating in 2011 she has exhibited regularly in both solo and group exhibitions and in 2013 became the Arts manager at a local art space, Number 57 in Lewisham.
“As an artist my primary concern is to understand how something can be presented, how an object, image or sculpture can be made to be seen. I take found material as a starting point to explore the ways in which information can be transposed from incidental pattern and mark into new language and meaning through a process of editing and recontextualizing.”

Frances studied Illustration at University College Falmouth after her Foundation Degree at Portsmouth University. She has since completed The Drawing Intensive Scholarship with The Royal Drawing School and currently works as a Restoration Artist alongside maintaining her own practice. Frances intends to intrigue and provoke conversations within and beyond the exhibition space with her work, playing with the presentation of imagery made for public consumption.
She has most recently exhibited her work in solo show "Porn on Pause" at Lewisham Arthouse, a group printmaker’s exhibition at Mercer Chance Gallery Hoxton, and exhibited, promoted and curated a successful two-woman exhibition at Mother Studios in Hackney Wick.
"'Porn on Pause' has led me to thinking about the wider picture of intimacy and the online - how people choose to connect with others through alternate realities and the effect of this on tangible relationships and our sense of self. Does it disconnect us from our day to day relationships? Does it offer freedom to further individual exploration? Does it distort ideas of intimacy or enhance and intensify that which is already felt?"
