Lucy Augé

In tune with the seasons and inspired by the simplicity of Asian art, the delicate ink paintings of self-taught artist, Lucy Augé, capture fleeting moments of nature's evolution. Known for producing large bodies of life work, Lucy's collections are exhibited internationally, and she is attracting a loyal following.

Lucy Augé has exhibited in the Royal Academy and the Garden Museum. Two of her large-scale installations are on permanent view in Gleneagles, Scotland and Beaverbrook estate in Surrey. She has also had solo shows in Japan and San Francisco.

Why I like flowers as a subject

'I am drawn to nature as it is ever changing. I like the ephemeral qualities it possesses. I try to bring nature's spirit into my work by drawing outside and exactly how I see it at that moment.'

See Lucy's work in our Florabundance exhibition at Watts Contemporary Gallery, on display until 7 October.
