Lucy Turner

I’m a digital illustrator, painter,  performance  artist and actor who tells  stories around identity, mental health and forgotten voices. I believe in working through trauma with art.

Through Creative Workforce for the Future I have been embedded in an amazing peer network that have greatly inspired me professionally and supported me personally. I’ve gained  confidence in my craft and in myself.  I’ve also gained a wider understanding of what the creative  industries can offer me and what I can offer them.

As a black woman, I’m constantly told by society I am not worthy enough for my voice to be heard. It’s finally our turn to contribute – that feels so powerful!
