b.lucey is an artist and mental health professional living and working in Dublin. Having studied multimedia art and working primarily in installation, performance and photography, she graduated with a B.A. in Visual Arts Practice in 2010. Entering her career in the depths of the recession and not knowing where to begin, she abandoned her practice and returned to education for a further seven years, taking her career in a different direction. While studying, she worked on several theatre productions, films and live performances as special effects makeup artist, but her fine art practice fell by the wayside. Returning to her art practice in 2020, she began painting as a means of reconnecting with creative expression, influenced by her interest in psychology and systemics. She currently has a studio practice alongside her work in mental health.
