Lucy Davey has been represented by The Artworks since 2005 when she graduated from UWE Bristol. In that time she has worked extensively in publishing and with a wide variety of clients in different areas. Her versatile style has been put to use on everything from food packaging, a pub sign, postage stamps and billboards in New York as well as nearly two hundred book covers. She has also illustrated several children’s picture books.
Beginning with pencil sketches on paper which she then works up on an iPad using a variety of digital brushes, Lucy finishes each piece by adjusting colour and adding texture in Photoshop. She is also able to deliver work in vector when required. Recently Lucy has been experimenting with adding movement to her images by making gifs.
Influenced by Japanese woodcut, mid-century design and vintage railway posters, Lucy uses flat colour, limited palettes and grainy textures to create contemporary work with a classic feel. Her inspirations include novels, film and spending time in nature. She works from her shared studio up a big hill in Bristol.
Clients include HarperCollins, Penguin Random House, Headline, Macmillan, RadioTimes, Royal Mail, Sainsbury’s, Hovis, Waitrose, Country Living, The Fabian Review and many more.
