Lucie Anderson


Date: Nov 1 – Nov 30Space: Foyer

Lucie Anderson is a full-time artist based in Napier, who specialises in working with alcohol-based inks. Her creative process involves exploring the flow and uniqueness of these inks, resulting in a one-of-a-kind and stunning artwork. She finds inspiration in the natural beauty surrounding her, and her pieces often reflect her love for nature and the environment. Lucie’s artwork has gained a reputation for being bold and vibrant, with a distinct style.

“Hello! I’m Lucie Anderson, a Taradale (Napier) based artist. I’ve been surrounded by art and craft my whole life. My family had a stationery/ art shop at home so I was always in the midst of creativity, I loved playing with all the different colour paints and crayons. After finishing Art School in Belgium, there has barely been a time in my life that I’d not had an art or craft project on the go. I lived for 20 years in the beautiful Dunedin surroundings and moved to sunny Napier (Hawke’s Bay) in 2015.

More recently, I decided to explore my own process and techniques with alcohol ink art. As a result of that exploration, I’ve been able to create beautiful pieces of artwork with vibrant colours mixed with gold/ silver metallics that have become popular among my peers and customers alike. With my current artwork, I’m continuing to expand upon this process and techniques as well as exploring new ones when curiosity strikes me!

Alcohol ink art refers to both the painting medium and the fluid painting technique. I control the flow of the liquid ink on a non-porous surface with airbrush and air wave techniques to create for you a unique painting.”  Lucie Anderson
