Lucy GrayBorn: 1963
Place of Birth: Oxford
Lucy Gray lives and works on the West Coast of Scotland where she creates her mixed media sculptures. Lucy studied sculpture at The Central School of Art and Design, London where she received the Phoebe Llewellyn sculpture prize. She then subsequently trained in furniture restoration and has worked on various projects from using the finest Japanese lacquer to gilding a palace in Kuwait. Her specialist work as a master gilder and lacquer restorer are clearly reflected in her work.
Lucy's work is held in numerous private collections, both nationally and internationally.
"I sculpt with a combination of materials because the textures excite me. My aim is that my work should never be pretty but always be beautiful. Shells are voices, pearls the spirit, and flowers the fruits of the spirit."
