Lucy Smith is an experimental printmaker working with tactile natural materials and alternative processes. She also enjoys making spontaneous drawings of people.

 

She frequently works with leather as the inked surface, often re-using well-worn objects that have otherwise come to the end of their useful life, such as the family sofa, or a pair of her son’s school shoes. 

 

Leather monoprints are also repurposed as hand-made negatives for contact photography using cyanotype. 

 

Lucy graduated from Central St Martins and now works in London as part of East London Printmakers. 

 

All her prints are made individually by hand, and are unique or part of only a small edition.
