Lucy McCann Ep2

Colour In Your Life Lucy McCann

Featured artist Lucy McCann appeared on Colour In Your Life Season Seven (7). Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.

Lucy McCann was born in Armidale, NSW in 1958 and studied fashion and dress design at The National Art School, which gave her the grounding in draftsmanship and design.

She won a scholarship to model with June Dally-Watkins and continued to model with the agency while designing clothing and accessories with the fashion design label, Cue. At this time Lucy was asked to design images of Australian themes for sloppy joes and sandshoes, so the study of screen printing was undertaken, also at The National Art School. She has been a teacher of art for 13 years, in Australia, New Zealand and Italy.

Lucy is an incredibly talented watercolour artist who, together with her husband Barry McCann, run McCann Fine Art, in Armidale NSW.

Lucy has returned for a second episode with Colour In Your Life, though this time, it’s with the beautiful Free Flow products of Chroma!
