LUCY MARSHALL: CARTOONIST, PAINTER, STORYTELLER FOR THE MODERN, GLOBAL, THINKING DOG. 

LUCY'S SUBJECTS, THE DOGNOSCENTI,
ENJOY HIGH FASHION, ART
AND ALL THINGS LUXURY.

Lucy was influenced early on by her father who adored cartoons.

 

During her teenage years, the drawings of Gerard Hoffnung, Jean-Jacques Sempe,

and Charles Addams were instrumental in forcing her to pick up a pen and draw humourous ideas from her keen observations of life around her.

Later, Saul Steinberg, Maira Kalman, and Jean-Philippe Delhomme influenced her pen's meanderings.

 

With a degree in the Japanese language from the University of Adelaide in South Australia,

and a fascination for human communication and behavioural observation, she ran a cross-cultural executive search firm in Asia for 25 years. She is multi-lingual - able to speak

English, Japanese and E-Spaniel assisted ably over the years by her Cocker Spaniel, Baci and more recently, Pepper.

 

She has a keen interest in (human) portraiture and has studied at Studio Escalier in Paris. As such, the principles of human portraiture painting are often combined in turning famous humans into infamous canines through her paintbrush.

 

Her paintings are a light-hearted reflection of behaviour where celebrity, history, fashion, food, literature, art history, music and luxury travel all collide in a delightfully funny way.

From late 2015, as THE DOGOPHILE,  Lucy published The Adventures of Baci - a mini-series story on Instagram.

This has included Baci Goes to Venice, Baci Does London, Baci Returns to Italy, Baci The Bride, Baci's Grand Honeymoon, The Continuous Venetian Affairs of Baci (and her friends), Masquerades in Venezia and her most recent 8th story,

Machiavellian Mutt-erings on The Orient Express.

 

She held her first solo exhibition in Arles, France in 2016, entitled DOGLAND, a second in 2019 in South Australia, entitled DOGLAND GOES BUSH. .

Lucy lives at Merribee, 2 hours out of Sydney in Australia, and occasionally Venice.
