Paintings of joyful & cheeky dogs, kooky chooks, vivid flowers and mysterious or day-dreamy girls are the basis of Lucy’s creative endeavours. These subjects are sometimes translated onto a more tactile/textile medium, such as screenprinted or wearable items. Lucy also incorporates rejuvenated and rediscovered treasured items or vintage fabrics into individual works. She also enjoys crafting small sculptures from tin or wire.

CONTINUING PROJECT – PUBLICATION OF PERCY THE BRAVEST DRAGON SERIES (8 BOOKS)
Lucy has published the first in the series of children’s book titled:
‘Percy the Bravest Dragon and The Blue-Tailed Butterfly.’
The character Percy Dragon was created in the 1960s by Lucy’s late father, Alan Robert Brisbane, a Ballarat artist and art teacher.
Almost forty years after his death, Lucy discovered the manuscripts of the Percy stories her father told herself and her siblings as a child, accompanied by some of the illustrations.
Lucy has completed the first of Percy’s adventures, to honour her father’s creativity.
The official launch to celebrate the ‘reawakening’of Percy, the Bravest Dragon, was at The Art Gallery of Ballarat, in August 2014.
