Born in Peru
Lives in North Vancouver, BC
Peruvian-born painter and mixed media artist Lucy Mercier immigrated to Canada in 1989, and resides on Vancouver’s North Shore. Always the traveler, Mercier has worked with art dealers and galleries along the American East Coast and internationally for the past 20 years. Her abstract paintings are achieved through an introspective process. She is inspired by an impulse to blend light, movement and colour, capturing the sense of a fleeting moment in the image. Mercier’s process begins with photography, which is then layered, scanned, printed, and reworked with various media. The final stage of her process involves the application of a textured painted surface with acrylic medium.
