Hi, I'm Lucy! Last June I graduated from the University of Dundee where I studied animation with a focus on visual development, layouts, background paint and compositing. 
Since graduating I've been juggling work as a sandwich artist for Subway, a freelance background artist for the 2D Workshop as well as directing my own 2D short animation in my spare time. I'm now keen to move into a full time art position and would like to thank you for taking the time to drop by my page!
