About Lucy Ames
Lucy Ames is a self-taught artist who in 2009 turned redundancy into a career as a successful artist. Lucy has taken her immense passion for colour, texture and vintage source materials into the creation of numerous series of works; seascapes, abstract landscapes, cityscapes and figurative paintings. The common theme throughout her work is an exploration of media and how they enhance one another alongside a passion for playing with words within the work. Lucy finds great joy in hiding stories within her paintings inspired by extracts from novels, music or newsprint in order to create a new narrative. She works from a shared studio on the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells alongside other creative residents who inspire and motivate her to continue to develop and exhibit her work.
