Lucie de Moyencourt

while i was enjoying the new Pichulik website yesterday i particularly loved their Brave Women series – intimate portraits of the women who wear Pichulik pieces. the first feature is on Lucie de Moyencourt who works as an architect, set designer, illustrator and painter.

lucie de moyencourt was born in 1983 in paris, she grew up in south africa, where she works as an architect, set designer, illustrator and painter. with no formal art training, painting and drawing is something lucie has always done for herself. by observing her subjects very closely, she allows the brush to move around the canvas without giving it much thought, trusting that her hand will do something intuitive to what she is seeing. lucie aims to complete a painting in one sitting, and enjoys working into wet paint with thicker layers of colour. “i paint because i am addicted to the ‘surprise’ that the painted canvas gives me when i step back from the easel”.
