Armed with a medical scalpel and a keen eye, Lucy James is an independent artist and illustrator; harvesting images from discarded and forgotten books and transforming them into carefully composed hybrids of form and meaning.
James has studied Visual Arts, Fashion and Textiles and holds an Honours degree in Fine Art. Since then, she has exhibited nationally and internationally, and has artwork housed in private collections throughout Australia, Japan, the USA and the UK.
James has recently been a contributor for publications Going Down Swinging, the Griffith Review, and has artwork featured on the latest album from TinPan Orange's 'over the sun', released September 2012.
Her latest work for the inaugural publication The Bookery Cook
, will be released May of this year.
