Lucy Hardie is an Australian artist based in Melbourne, Victoria. Born in Shepparton, Victoria, she began her education at a Waldorf school that her parents built on their farm and it was here that her artistic inclinations were fostered. Surrounded by her mother and father’s extensive collection of art books, she became enchanted at an early age by the work of the Old Masters, Matthias Grünewald, Ilya Repin and the illustrations by H. J. Ford and Ivan Bilibin, often losing herself in their otherworldly imagery.

In 2007, Hardie held her debut solo exhibition at Synergy Gallery in Melbourne, which sold out on opening night. Her work has since been exhibited throughout Australia, in Europe and the US and featured in numerous publications, including Curvy, Semi-Permanent and Mirior Magazine. She holds a Bachelor of Illustration from NMIT in Melbourne, and in 2009, travelled to Austria to commence study with US artist, Philip Rubinov Jacobson, in the 'mischtechnik', an Old Masters method of painting using a combination of resin, egg tempera and oils.
