Artists Lucy du Sautoy

Created in a spirit of daydreaming and distraction I paint views through windows, which I use to capture and contemplate the in-between spaces of our everyday lives.

The subject allows me to explore the mechanics of painting, attending to colour, abstraction and detail, while at the same time registering human experience. The act of looking out offers some mental escape and space to think, daydream, reflect and remember. A window is made opaque by the reflection of light on condensation, a doodled smiley face offers a hopeful human presence.

Having previously had a career in Marketing, I graduated from the Art Academy in London with a First Class diploma in Fine Art in 2015. During the summer of that year, my painting “Daydreaming” was shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. I was named Artists and Illustrators Magazine; Artist of the Year in 2019. 

I have also had work accepted into the 2022 and 2023 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

I regularly exhibit in group and solo shows in London and around the UK. I am frequently commissioned and my work is held in private and corporate collections across the UK, and in Europe and the US.

I live in London with my husband and four children.
