Who am I anyway?
My name is Lucy
as in the kebab.
As a six-year-old, I set up galleries of my scribbles and ‘poems’ in my nana's bedroom and proceeded to charge her 20p every time she wanted to come in. I'd like to think that this entrepreneurial spirit still exists in me, however, my six-year-old self’s gallery still stands as the most profitable project I’ve worked on so it’d be nice to make more than £1.80 for making stuff.

I graduated from the University of Gloucestershire in 2019 with a first-class BA (Hons) in Advertising. I designed & executed many creative concepts during my three years.
I was lucky to have a very close-knit course, leading and organising Advertising socials with my coursemates/housemates.
Before uni, I went to Sixth Form and studied A Level Art & Design, English Literature, Media Studies & Maths Statistics.
I try to remember to make things just for the sake of making things, rather than solely for projects.
To look at, I like cartoonists such as WebComic Name, Mr Bingo, Gemma Correll, Liana Finck and Jean Jullien to name a few. But when making things, I like papercutting, lino and monoprints. I'd love to try and create a recognisable illustrative style for myself one day.
I am not naturally adventurous but I long to be and always push myself to experience as much as I possibly can. I've been lucky enough to go to a variety of places and have stayed in so many dingy hostels that my bravery (and immune system) has grown.
I would love to travel further afield in the future and see more cool places.
What I'll Be Eating In The Year 2050
One minute and seven seconds of me talking about banoffee pie and my gall bladder. I'm sorry but if you're this deep into my portfolio what did you expect?
