Lucy Maddox

Lucy Maddox is a visual artist living in Carlton, originally from Kentucky. She is an Artist in Residence at Pentridge Studios in Coburg and has been a finalist in the Lyn McCrea Memorial Drawing Prize and the Banyle Works on Paper prize, with upcoming solo exhibitions in 2022 in Fitzroy and St Albans. Before transitioning to art full-time, Lucy completed graduate studies in linguistics at the University of Melbourne. This background informs her practice, as much of her work responds to the human body, touch and gesture. She runs workshops in plein air sketching and has over ten years’ teaching experience in Australia and overseas. In addition to teaching at VAS and operating a freelance art career, she is currently employed as a Content Writer for Melbourne Polytechnic’s creative arts curriculum.
