b. 1967, lives and works in North Hertfordshire, UK
Lucy Threlfall is a painter based in north Hertfordshire. After a degree in Art History at UCL in 1990 she went on to study at Charles Cecil Studios in Florence. From 1997 she worked principally as a portrait painter, undertaking portrait commissions while looking after a young family. Then looking to expand her practice she completed an MA in Printmaking at the Anglia Ruskin in Cambridge in 2012. Since then, alongside the portraits, Lucy has been making large gestural oil landscapes that fuse observations of nature with imagination and memory. Her recent work explores old master compositions and classical narratives – in particular the theme of metamorphosis – within the context of her own landscape studies.
Lucy has exhibited with the Royal Society of Portraits Painters at the Mall Galleries in 2003, at Christie’s in 2005 with the Garrick Milne prize and in 2019 with Wells Art Contemporary at Wells Cathedral.
