Born in 1974, Lucy McKie has painted since childhood and has always had a real love of portraiture. Although Lucy specialises in portraits, she also paints still life, and enjoys painting both subjects for their very different challenges. Most of her time is spent on commissioned portraits which provide a really exciting and interesting variety of sitters. She has won awards including The Barbara Tate Oil Award, The Daler and Rowney People's Choice Award, C.Roberson Award (2006 & 2007), a Stanley Grimm Award, The L.Cornelissen Award, and the second place Winsor and Newton Young Artists Award. Here are some examples of Lucy's work.
Congratulations to Lucy and more news on the other new members and associate members in the next few days.
