Lucie has always liked to create, and she started drawing at a young age. She took an oil painting class as a teenager, and then her love of learning led her to study a variety of art forms in her leisure time. She now spends most of her artistic time painting with acrylics. Whether on a hike or on a trip, she finds ideas for her paintings by taking dozens of photos of everything and anything, but nature is her main inspiration.
“I think God has created a beautiful world, and I look for that beauty everywhere. Sometimes it jumps at me — in a sunset, a view of the mountains, a delicate flower, my children’s smiles — other times, it is a lot more elusive. Oh, but what elation when I find it! At that moment, art opens up a whole new world to me: techniques, theories, supplies, and imagination all merge together in an attempt at capturing that beauty. Such an interesting, and ever challenging, process!”
