Lucy Marie Smith – Not Alone

Lucy Marie Smith works primarily in traditional media with a focus on portraiture. These pieces are oil portraits incorporated into posters about mental health issues of women in their early to late twenties (her age). More of Lucy’s work can be found at her website,

Artist’s statement: “I am a recent graduate of Moore College of Art & Design, I suffer from major depression, anxiety, and bipolar traits, and I made this series because more people need to know that they are not alone.”
