Lucy Jones (b. 1955)

Having worked in the Edinburgh New Town for the past ten years, Lucy’s work has been inspired by the surrounding Georgian Architecture. She uses a distinctive combination of materials including collage, paint, print making, drawing and hot wax, to reconstruct distinctively ‘Edinburgh’ architectural features. A collector of old documents, maps and books, wherever possible, she constructs her collages with relevant texts and images, creating unique ‘building portraits’, which have a literary as well as visual story.

Graduating from Norwich School of Art, she initially returned home to Wales and exhibited in private and public galleries and exhibitions such as the Wales Drawing Biennale, the University of Aberystwyth and Oriel 31 in Newtown, winning their annual Open award twice.

Since moving to Scotland ten years ago, she has been selected to show in the RSA, SSA and RSW Opens, was Artist in Residence for the StAnza poetry festival in St Andrews, featured in the BBC documentary ‘Newtown’, and was artist in residence at the Kimpton Hotel Edinburgh. She regularly exhibits in a range of Edinburgh Galleries and has a waiting list for private and business commissions.
