As a newcomer to the BCTF this year, Lucy Gell is likely to turn a few heads as she brings her own unique style to the show. Lucy specialises in producing original animal and bird prints bursting with fun and character. You cannot help but smile at her etchings as you walk past her stand. With a background in art and design and a previous career as a puppet maker Lucy sure knows how to make each character tell a story. Lucy uses 3 essential ingredients
- lashings of humour
- a bucketful of care
- a sprinkling of madness
Lucy’s conveys the love she has for all living creatures illustrating the unique personalities and humour that she sees in them. She likes to portray a great sense of fun and humour with a strong sense of character, blending simple design with great depth of textures in her own unique graphic style. She uses different techniques including acid plate etching, dry point etching, screen printing and traditional illustration to produce her prints which range in price from £25 through £220.
