Lucia Fraser is a multidisciplinary artist specialising in painting and ceramics. Finding inspiration from the natural world her work is gestural and expressive with a distinct colour palette. She paints from memory allowing a freedom of form that often journeys into abstraction. Layers of ink and acrylic are built up and then later removed giving her paintings an ethereal, dreamlike quality.

Lucia's ceramic practice has evolved from a desire to create usable works of art. She uses traditional hand building techniques to make functional pieces in stoneware. Her recognisable mark making transfers from canvas to ceramic in a fluid painterly style.

Lucia studied BA (Hons) Fine Art at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, graduating in 2005. Her work has since been selected for various exhibitions across the UK. Lucia is currently a member of the Turning Earth In Production studio based in east London.
