Welcome to my Studio!
I am Roberta…but you can call me by my nickname, Lucy, if you would like!
So, here’s my story…
Like most of us, as a child, I loved to create art with pencils, crayons and paint. Why do we abandon art when we grow up? Sadly, it took me decades to get back to art making, and even longer to call myself an artist. Today, I can’t imagine a life without art in it!
I have a deep and growing love for drawing and painting. Artists of the past, like Matisse, have shown me how to use bold colors in my own portraits. Monet has taught me that making an impression of what I see is a wonderful way to express myself in art. And van Gogh has taught me about telling a story with deliberate brush strokes! There are so many more artists, past and present, who have inspired me to continue in my own artistic journey. For all of them, I am so grateful!
Through life’s many ups and downs, staying creative keeps me grounded, and brings me such joy. I am so happy to have this opportunity to share my art with you! You will find my original art here on my website, as well as in my online shop, ArtcyLucyShop.com
Thank you for coming to my website today.
