Lucy H. Pearce cover artist and author
Womancraft Publishing is proud to celebrate not just the words, but the images of talented women too.

LUCY H. PEARCE paints the inner world of dreams, archetypes and pure energy, featuring on the cover of Creatrix, Reaching for the Moon, Moon Time and She of the Sea.

Symbols emerge which speak the language of the soul – the moon, spirals, trees, cherry blossom, feathers, birds and women’s bodies in all their beauty. Colours and energies shimmer and swirl: there is a sense of flow and meditative movement in her paintings that demands contemplation from the viewer, a shifting to another state of being.

Using a multi-layered intuitive painting technique, she builds up layer upon layer of rainbow colour: her paintings evolve from abstraction to dreamlike imagery. Her recent work incorporates her love of zentangles.
