Lucille took an ENSAAMA at Olivier de Serres, a school for applied arts in Paris, and then studied for her DSSA in Communication Design, the French equivalent of an MA. She also has an MA in Communication Design from Central St Martins in London.
All the elements in Lucille’s work are drawn by hand, but they are often montaged together using a computer. She finds the physical process of drawing satisfying, and much of her personal work is screen-printed. She’s been a member of Print Club London for many years.
Lucille likes the viewer to be able to appreciate the pencil and brushwork that goes into a piece. She often draws simple images, but brings them together into complex compositions that, through meticulous detail and shading, have a hidden meaning or story to tell. Sometimes they’re built up into patterns, creating surreal images that are very realistically drawn, but are not reality. As a viewer you can discover something new in her illustrations each time you look at them.
