Lucy MacLeod


"I was born and brought up in the suburbs of Edinburgh and following a short stint as a hapless 'rebel youth', I finally got my act together (ish) and applied for art college.


After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art with an honours degree in drawing and painting, It was then I luckily discovered Illustration after a friend kindly gifted me their clapped out computer which happened to have a very early version of Photoshop installed on it.


After much tinkering and the addition of The Scanner (beams of lights through clouds and many hallelujahs), I found my own personal sweet spot by combining traditional hand rendered brush and line work with digital/collaged elements. I am now regularly unleashed upon fashion students, teaching a range of fashion illustration and graphics techniques.


Amongst other things, I have created a music video, merchandise and record cover for Warner Bros Records, a billboard for British Airways, decorated Levi Strauss Ladystyle clothing, designed a promo christmas card and created live illustrations for Bare Minerals UK and my work has featured in many an editorial for the likes of Nylon Magazine, Elle, Marie Claire, The Indendent and The Times. I sell and exhibit originals and prints to private collectors and have
exhibited internationally."
