Lucy Stevens is a British Contemporary artist whose work explores our relationship with the natural environment on a social and cultural level.
She draws inspiration from ornithology and colour theory. She is also an amateur birdwatcher. Her projects often include working in collaboration with experts in the natural world including scientists, museum curators, ornithologists, photographers and musicians.
She creates mixed media abstract portraits of birds on paper, and sound works developed from gathering field recordings.
Her most recent work in partnership with The British Trust of Ornithology and the Wildlife Trust explores the effects of climate change on birds via a body of mixed media artwork, some of which is informed by research that demonstrates declines in bird populations and changes to bird behaviour (migration and egg laying) due to extreme weather changes. This work was exhibited in May 2021 at StudionAme, Leicester.
Lucy lives and works in Leicester. She received an MA and BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University. Her work has been shown in exhibitions and art fairs across the East Midlands, Yorkshire, East Anglia, and London. She has also taken part in artist residencies in Scotland, Brussels, France, and Sweden.
