Lucy will take you on a journey all over the U.S. and sometimes abroad, yet she'll often focus on everyday, basic objects like electrical outlets. See the world from behind her lens. 

Words are her favorite medium, but Lucy loves oils, acrylics, alcohol inks, pencils, pens, markers, charcoal, and pastels. Take a peek at her collection.

"I am an artist. I can say that confidently now, but that hasn’t always been the case. You see, I decided when I was a kid that I was a writer. It was my dream, and it had been for as long as I can remember. To be quite honest, I never even thought of being anything else. And, aside from math, it was really the only thing I thought I was any good at.

I wouldn’t say that I woke up from my dream or that I gave up on it, but I definitely slipped into some sort of nightmare. What happened was, I stopped writing. I stopped because I simply couldn’t do it anymore. After my mom died, I was too sad for words. I tried to find the right ones, but they were never there … ever. So, naturally, I regressed. I started to draw again — like I did when I was a kid to pass the time.

That’s basically what saved me … art. For a long time, it was the only thing I could turn to, the only way I could express myself. But, still, I never thought of myself as an artist — just a writer with a hobby. I thought of other people as artists, and I admired them for their gift. 

But that was then, and this is now."
