Lucy Sparrow hails from Bath, in the West Country of England and works mainly in felt to create art that evokes delight and emotional responses from nearly everyone who sees it. Her world is very much about being able to touch and feel the work she produces and to bring people closer to her creations. Lucy’s work has often been described as childlike because of the bright primary colors that she uses and the quirky little touches that she adds to almost everything she makes. All ages delight in the ingenious way she subverts everyday objects and turns household objects to life with playful faces and a joie de vivre that is totally infectious.
"It’s more sewing than knitting but I do knit a hell of a lot too. I’m a natural stitched, I remember doing it for the first time when I was four years old. I made a felt star to hang on the Christmas tree and my mum has still got it." - Lucy Sparrow
