Lucy Wins Major Art Award
Lucy has been named the UK’s ‘Most Popular Selling Published Artist 2018’ at the Fine Art Trade Guild Awards in Stratford Upon Avon.
Following Lucy being named the UK’s Best Up and Coming Artist by the Fine Art Trade Guild in 2016, Lucy has seen the popularity of her artwork grow on an unprecedented scale, and to capture the Most Popular Selling Award just two year’s later is a wonderful accolade.
Lucy said, “It is such an honour to follow some wonderful artists in winning the award. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would reach this point just a few short years ago when I was painting one off pictures from home, to become the UK’s most popular selling artist. None of this would have been possible without the support I have received and the wonderful team at Lucy Pittaway. I only ever set out to create art to make people smile, and that is simply what I will continue to try to do”.
Previous winners include iconic artists such as Mackenzie Thorpe, Kerry Darlington and Doug Hyde, with Lucy one of a number of British artists blazing the trail for British Art across the globe.
Lucy now sees her art shipped all over the world not just to Yorkshire, from Harrogate to Hong Kong, Scarborough to Sydney, Lucy Pittaway paintings brighten up any room.
Lucy’s award is based on the volume of artwork sold, but just as importantly the popularity of the paintings, how people resonate with them, and the following Lucy’s artwork now commands. The interaction Lucy received from supporters all over the world on social media is wonderful to see, with each and every comment read and reacted to where feasibly possible!
From one off paintings in a room at home just a short time ago, to a fully fledged family business with two art galleries and a wonderful team, the Lucy Pittaway story continues to grow and this is only the beginning of what promises to be a Yorkshire story to follow!
