Lucy Stevens is a multidisciplinary British contemporary artist whose work explores our relationship and understanding of nature conservation.
She draws inspiration from ornithology and colour theory. She is also an amateur birdwatcher. Her projects often include working in collaboration with experts in the natural world including scientists, museum curators, ornithologists, photographers and musicians.
Her work interprets birdsong, museum collections and conservation data into mixed media abstract portraits on paper and sound works developed from gathering field recordings.
Her most recent work in collaboration with The British Trust for Ornithology and Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust explores the effects of climate change on migratory birds. The new collection of mixed media artwork is informed by scientific research to demonstrate declines in bird populations and changes in bird behaviour due to extreme weather conditions. She also works closely with Leicester Museum’s natural science avian collection to change the narrative around museums and conservation.
Lucy lives and works in Leicester. She received an MA and BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University. Her work has been shown in exhibitions and art fairs across the East Midlands and London. She has also taken part in artist residencies in Scotland, Brussels, France, and Sweden.
