Yorkshire artist Lucy Pittaway is the Fine Art Trade Guild’s ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year 2016’ and the winner of ‘Best New Art Business 2017’.
Lucy Pittaway has two dedicated Art Galleries, located in Brompton-on-Swale, North Yorkshire, with the second in Richmond historic town centre, North Yorkshire.
A former graphic design teacher, Lucy took the decision to become a full time professional artist just a few years ago. In the space of three years Lucy has seen her popularity grow at an incredible speed, with her artwork now being shipped worldwide and a social media following of over 20,000.
Lucy uses soft pastels to create bright and uplifting artwork, with each piece having an underlying story and inspiration related to Lucy’s own life, family and surroundings up in the Yorkshire Dales.
Lucy has become best known for her ‘Sheep’ collection, which Lucy uses to portray her life in the Dales, and more recently her ‘Cycling and Le Tour’ collections have resonated with cycling enthusiasts and people of the North following Lucy’s work as the Official Artist of the Tour de Yorkshire for 2016 and 2017. Lucy’s wider collections of ‘The Houses’, ‘Dreaming of Yorkshire’ and ‘The Cows’ are all available to view at www.lucypittaway.co.uk
