About Lucy Gell
Lucy Gell has been designing and hand printing fun animal prints since 2001 using her own unique humorous style. She takes inspiration from lots of birds and animals and especially from her own dogs and cats and by the humour in children’s book illustrations which I loved as a child and from my previous career in animating.
Lucy studied graphic design and illustration at university then began a career in animation as a puppet maker in films and television commercials during which time she was responsible for fabricating the Martians in the Tim Burton film 'Mars Attacks'.
Lucy trained as a puppet animator and animated on children’s television programmes such as Noddy, Postman Pat, Bob the Builder and Andy Pandy.
Whilst animating Lucy took a short course in print making and discovered a passion for printmaking as an additional outlet for her creative mind alongside my animation work. Lucy took a break from animation to start a family and found that she was able to devote more of her time to printmaking providing a good work - life balance while she had a young family. She learned techniques such as acid plate etching, collograph and screen printing. As her knowledge and enthusiasm grew she started to exhibit her work at various shows up and down the country on a regular basis.
Lucy now regularly exhibits at shows such as Printfest in Cumbria, Bovey Tracey Contemporary Craft Festival Devon, Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair Manchester, Hereford Contemporary Craft Fair, RHS Show Malvern and many more.
Lucy says of her work, “I blend simple design and textures to bring out character in the images which are, like me, full of fun and humour.”
