MEET THE ARTIST | LUCY WILLIAMS

LUCY WILLIAMS

We are thrilled to feature original paintings by artist Lucy Williams this October 2018.

Lucy’s new body of work consists of more than 40 paintings, including many large canvases (she has a soft spot for big art!), lovely works on paper, as well as small groupings in acrylic boxes – all are filled with Lucy’s fearless use of color and energy that you will love. Join us on October 4th!

GETTING TO KNOW LUCY

PH: What inspires you to be creative?

LW: When I’m traveling and seeing new things that I love . . . houses, store fronts, landscapes, etc, I get inspired! I like to take lots of pictures and absorb all the colors.

PH: When did you discover you were an artist?

LW: As early as I can remember, I loved to draw. My mom was a small business owner of her own clothing line, and my oldest sister was always drawing, sewing, and painting, so creativity and innovation were definitely rampant throughout our house! In school, academics weren’t my thing, but I loved art class! I majored in art at the University of Georgia but decided to start my career in interior design for the sake of getting a paycheck. Interior design and my art are both passions of mine and I feel lucky to have people that enjoy my work!!

PH: What has been the best thing you’ve learned while creating art?

LW: It’s okay to make mistakes. So often I’ll paint something I hate at first . . . but I’ll keep working on it and eventually the “mistakes” are what help the art evolve into something so satisfying in the end.

PH: What do you think of garden gnomes?

LW: I’d spend my $ on something else – ha!

PH: How do you like your coffee?

LW: Black with a Splenda.

PH: Any sweet indulgences (to go with that coffee)?

LW: Anything chocolate.

PH: If we came to your house for dinner, what would the evening be like?

LW: Aside from great food, I’d provide tasty cocktails, good music, and really fun guests!

PH: An embarrassing moment?

LW: The most recent was going back to our rental car in a parking lot, waiting for my husband who was in a store, and 10 minutes later realizing I was sitting in someone else’s car.

PH: Sunset or Sunrise?

LW: Definitely sunset! Sunrise is too early and sunsets involve happy hour!

PH: What is something you admire most about people?

LW: I admire decisive people. They get the job done!

PH: Thank you so much, we can’t wait for the show!
