A recent transplant from San Francisco, Lucie has changed her focus from a thirty-year career in Printing and Graphic Arts
to follow her bliss and become a full time sculptor.
Originally from New York City, Lucie studied graphic design at Parsons School of Design and Fine Arts at Hunter College,
going on to a successful career in graphic design and printing. She established her own print brokerage business in San Francisco;
during the years she juggled the responsibilities of family and business, she found time to further her own artistic endeavors.
Working in clay was her first love. She worked for a time in Marin Co-op in San Rafael and most recently at The Clay
Place in SOMA, San Francisco.
While living in San Francisco, Lucie supported many arts organizations and museums. As a member of the Board of the Museo
Italo Americano she served on the Exhibition Committee.
Lucie continues to produce her originals in clay; but has chosen bronze for this series because its seductive and luminous
finish emphasizes the voluptuous forms and powerful magic of these archetypal females while remaining a solid and ageless
Calling the Gods and No More are the first in a series of eight works. The originals are created by Lucie in her studio
in Cambria, and then cast in limited editions (which vary according to piece) at Genesis Bronze Foundry in Paso Robles.
"Right now I really want to explore how the female form can embody and express what is both universal and personal.
I want them to be both mythical and real; timeless and modern".
Lucie lives in Cambria with her husband, Ian McLauchlan.
