Lucy Seligman was born in London in 1985. She started drawing and painting from a young age with her grandmother who was also an artist.
Her main focus in education was always art, leading her onto an art foundation course at Wimbledon College of Arts. Here she specialised in Textile Surface Print Design. She went onto Oxford Brookes University to study BA Hons Fine Art.
Since graduating from University, Lucy taught children art and worked within the art world. She then joined an atelier course and studied life drawing, portrait painting and printmaking.
After a couple of years studying she joined Foss Fine Art gallery and collaborated with the studios and the gallery, creating a show for the contemporary artists to display their works. Lucy also participated in a group exhibition at Sotheby’s, New Bond Street.
Having been lucky enough to spend most of her childhood holidays up in the Scottish Highlands, Lucy decided to explore the stunning landscapes from her roots and paint a Scottish series which was close to her heart. Her style has been developing into layered paintings with deep thought and an energetic spirit.
Lucy is drawn to the beauty of nature which she perceives in her own way depicting an ordinary-seeming scene with vibrant colours of light, serenity and movement.
Lucy also paints scenes of nature in Surrey and places which capture her imagination.
