Lucy has been employed as a sessional and part time contracted academic staff member at the TSA since February 2007, within the studio disciplines of Sculpture, Core Studies, Drawing, and Preparatory Studies in Fine Art and Design. Increasingly over this period she has been actively engaged in the planning, development and delivery of various first, second and third year units. Within this context she has worked closely with studio-heads, course co-ordinators and teaching peers to fine-tune curricula that encourages active, independent and deep learning opportunities for students.
Lucy has recently become an Associate Lecturer in Fine Arts.
Lucy completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the College of Fine Art, University of N.S.W in 1990, and was awarded a Master of Fine art from the Tasmanian School of Art, University of Tasmania in 2007, where she is an Associate Lecturer in Fine Arts, teaching in Sculpture and Core Studies.
Lucy maintains a local, national and increasingly internation exhibition practice. She has been the recipient of several Arts Tasmania and Australia Council grants for new work and professional development. In 2005 she was awarded an Australian Postgraduate Award research scholarship, through the University of Tasmania. She has participated in three Ten Days on the Island festivals, and was the 2009 Asialink Visual Arts Resident in Japan, where she is participated in the 4th Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial.
Within her research practice Lucy explores the ties that bind us and connect us to our place, and how these ties offer multiple versions of the same world. These multiple versions reflect a capacity to take something and run with it.
In developing work around these ideas, her research frequently involves working with diverse communities to explore such notions of value and attachment to place.
Her chosen media is cross-disciplinary, typically setting up opportunities for encounter and change for the viewer beyond the artist’s touch.
