Lucy Clayton

With a background in textiles and teaching art, Lucy's personal work has gradually moved towards illustration and printmaking.

Lucy enjoys drawing and recreates the mark making qualities of her work using lino and ink blot printing techniques. Printing with these methods creates unusual and unexpected effects that add texture to her work. Currently Lucy is working with ink and watercolour as she loves its versatility and vibrancy.

The ideas for her illustrations come from words, film, and nature. Food is another theme that always pops up; its colour; shape and texture are a constant source of inspiration and nostalgia.
