Lucy gained her masters at The Royal College of Art in 2009.
She is now a practicing fine artist and illustrator based in London.

“If you’ve ever loved books then these are the art works for you. Atherton creates worlds, highly patterned and distinctive, as exotic as a child’s imagination, and as a tenaciously memorable as her mystical and lovingly rendered cartographies. These pieces take you back to a time when you didn’t just read books, but lived in them, and could not leave behind the worlds in them simply by closing the cover. If you like Wes Anderson you’ll love these”
