Q Lucy, tell us a bit about yourself …..
A My name’s Lucy Timbrell and I’m a visual artist and teacher.
Q Why did you start your Adelaide business?
A I began my visual art business upon finishing art school and my post-graduate teaching qualification. It enables me to showcase, share and sell my lino cut artworks. I also teach lino printing workshops as a way of imparting my knowledge and spreading the joy of printmaking!
Q How would you describe what’s special about your Adelaide business?
A My artwork is entirely original, unique and all handmade, often inspired by the beautiful native flora and fauna. I love connecting with people through art, and have been able to meet new people through teaching workshops and hosting Open Studio days.
Q What are your favourite Adelaide places to eat?
A For a casual night out, I love Cinnamon Club on The Parade and Parwana on Henley Beach Rd.
Q What is your favourite South Australian made drink?
A I love a good reisling, and anything from the Clare Valley has my vote!
Q What books are you currently reading?
A After preparing work for an exhibition about Homer’s Odyssey, I have been engrossed in books about Ancient Greece and am currently reading Circe by Madeline Miller. Next on the list is The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood.
Q What’s on your current playlist?
A My playlist is very eclectic and depends entirely on my mood! Currently I’m working my way through various Paul Kelly albums.
Q Which travel destinations are ones you’d recommend?
A I was lucky enough to travel to Turkey a number of years ago. Istanbul especially was full of absolutely beautiful art and design, including stunning rugs, ceramics and architecture. Definitely worth a visit! Italy is also a fabulous destination and has an amazing history as well as great food and wine.
Q What are your favourite things to do in Adelaide and South Australia?
A I love visiting Kangaroo Island for the beautiful wildlife and scenery. The Art Gallery of South Australia and the SA Museum are also wonderful places to visit for artistic inspiration.
