B. Lucy Stevens – Providence, RI
B. Lucy Stevens is an internationally recognized, self-taught artist living in Providence, Rhode Island. Lucy paints intuitively, her work is vibrant and expressionistic, daily life imagined in a brilliant cacophony of color and pattern. She is inspired by primitive and outsider art and her far-flung travels, from South America, to Indonesia to the South of France, where she lived for a year on a flower farm.
Lucy leads art workshops for children in underserved communities and for adults with developmental disabilities, and she is hugely inspired by their art as well. Her work has been featured in galleries and shows throughout the U.S. as well as in France and the U.K.
My paintings are everything I think and feel and witness, everything I find funny and sad and absurd. They are my offering of myself to the world.
