Lucy Stevens is a multidisciplinary British contemporary artist whose work explores our relationship with the natural environment.  Lucy Stevens’ artistic practice examines the acoustic ecology of the natural environment, using field recording, digital illustration, performance and printmaking as a tool to visualise sound produced by wildlife, weather and other natural phenomena.

She draws inspiration from ornithology and colour theory. Her projects often include working in collaboration with experts in the natural world including museum curators, ornithologists, photographers and musicians.

Her most recent work in collaboration with Leicester Museum & Art Gallery explores creative methods for cataloguing British bird skin specimens. Her solo exhibition ‘Colour Coded Birds’ (2022-2023), saw a diverse collection of bird specimens grouped together by colour alongside 2D and 3D contemporary artworks.

Lucy lives and works in Leicester. She received an MA and BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University. Her work has been shown in exhibitions and art fairs across the East Midlands and London. She has also taken part in artist residencies in London, Scotland, Brussels, France, and Sweden.
