Lucy went to Manchester University to study Drama and French and then to Central School of Speech and Drama in London. She worked as an actor in theatre, television and film, as a community arts practitioner and at BAFTA.
Lucy moved back to Wales in 2007 and lives with her partner and three children near Llandrindod Wells in Powys, where she now teaches two days a week.
Lucy did an A level in Art, but until May 2018 painting was mainly a dream. However a car crash changed that. Lucy’s senses changed and everything became more intense - sounds, smells and colours. The vibrancy of the colours she could see were wonderful for painting and staying at home to paint a joy.
