LUCY MACKIE

Painter/designer

Lucy is an Artist, Teacher and Mother currently living and working in Otautahi. She enjoys all aspects of making and creating, and workings with a range of media. As a proud Cantabrian, she has felt a sudden urge to take a closer look at our ever-changing climate and has recently noticed she has a bit of a ‘crush’ on our central city.


With an evolving city on the verge of emergence, she feels a sense of nostalgia for the remnants of what we used to have. New Regent Street, The Cathedral, Theatre Royal and other iconic buildings that are under scrutiny, have become focus points for her work. Somehow she feels as if labouring over a semi-realistic representation of these buildings might help to retrieve them from disrepair.
