Lucy Pittaway studied Art and Design at college, before taking a place at Northumbria University to read Graphic Design where she developed her skills in digital art, photography and mixed media.
After graduating, Lucy took a gap year and ran her own business in creative crafts, before pursuing a career in graphic design. After two years as a graphic designer she was offered a teaching role at the college where she had previously studied - she claims to have learnt as much during that period as she did whilst she was a student!
Like many teachers she was given generous holidays and spent as much of that time as possible drawing and creating canvases that were sold to various clientele in the UK and Europe.
As time progressed, Lucy came to the conclusion that she enjoyed creating her own paintings and drawings far more than teaching, so gave up teaching to pursue her lifetime passion to become an artist.
