Lucy Chapman was born in the Netherlands and accompanied her family to Australia in 1950. After raising a family of three children, Lucy completed a Diploma of Visual Arts at Yallourn TAFE, followed by study of botanical art commencing in 2010 at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Melbourne. Having studied with Mali Moir, Dianne Emery and Jenny Phillips, she then attended Monash University’s Faculty of Art and Design, focusing on nature-surrealism, graduating with a Bachelor of Visual and Media Arts in 2016. Lucy has exhibited widely, including two solo exhibitions, the first of which was Poetry in Tone (2010); her second exhibition, Botanical Reflections, opened the 2012 West Gippsland Gardivalia Festival. For this Winter Journey project Lucy has returned mainly to nature-surrealism, mixed with a dash of contemporary-abstract.
