Meet the Maker with Lucy Martin
Award-winning local artist Lucy Martin will join us at The Shop where she will present her botanical artwork, which is on display in the 24th Annual Exhibition in The Studio, and on sale in The Shop. Through her work, Lucy conveys her deep love for nature, especially for what is often overlooked: those small, unexpected and delightful things we can discover when we look closely.
Lucy will speak at 4 pm; you’ll have a chance to ask questions and meet the artist while you browse our selection of Lucy’s framed original paintings, framed and unframed prints, and notecards.
Light refreshments will be served.
Masks required in The Shop.
Lucy Martin’s botanical paintings reflect her lifelong, deep connection with nature. She grew up in Colorado where her love of the mountain forests nurtured in her a habit of close observation of the botanical world. As a young girl she began drawing the plants she saw around her.
Lucy paints in gouache and watercolor, frequently focusing on the mysterious beauty of fungi and lichens. Mainly self-taught, she has developed an individual painting technique characterized by layering, meticulous detail and intense color. She lives in Santa Rosa, California, and teaches gouache technique for botanical art.
