Lucy Mahon is Watford born, London based artist and illustrator. Working across a mixture of mediums, she makes simple, classic and playful pieces of art and illustration.
Much of her work is based around rituals and places that bring about comfort, nostalgia, happiness or a feeling of home. Often rooted in the everyday, her collections are visual love letters to the world we live in. Lucy’s recent collaborations include Soho House & Soho Home, NET-A-PORTER, Smythson and North Coast Asylum gallery.
