Biography / Lucy Hardie

Lucy Hardie is an Australian artist best known for her meticulously rendered ink drawings on cotton paper. After she finished her Bachelor in Illustration in 2009 she travelled to Europe. Her intricately constructed, evocative works are exhibited all around the world and are featured in numerous art and literary publications. Her art can be found on her collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/14 in 2019.

Hardie began her education at a Waldorf school that her parents built on their farm and it was here that her artistic inclinations were fostered. Surrounded by her family's extensive collection of art books, she became enchanted at an early age by the work of Grünewald, Repin and the illustrations by H. J. Ford and Ivan Bilibin. Through a devotion to the creation of beauty, a fascination with death and darkness as catalysts for transformation and new life, and the portrayal of story and symbol as a means of reflecting our shared human experience, the artist’s works invite viewers in to deeper understanding of intimacy, connection, tenderness and power.
