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. Working with collage, painting and drawing, her work touches on issues of inherited folklore, the commodification of pets and the exploitation of natural resources.

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 inaugural publications Cat People magazine and the Key of Sea journal. Her current collection is collaboration with Jeweller Anna Davern, and is available at Craft.
