Lucie Buchert works predominantly in the medium of painting with acrylics, but also enjoys photography out in nature. She was born in Sacramento, California and now lives on the Northern Coast of California by the Giant Redwoods and the ocean. Lucie enjoys working with color, her paintings are of whimsical things out in nature, landscapes, flowers, trees, birds,and even an abstract here and there!
Lucie took Art I, II, and III and Commercial Graphics in School. She has always loved to draw and painted her first mural in her children's bedroom 12 years ago. It was when she was painting the mural that she discovered her LOVE of painting.
Lucie has displayed her paintings at Cindy's Hair Salon, in Fortuna, CA for 'Fortuna's First Friday' where downtown merchants stay open late and display artwork from local artists. She is planning on showing her artwork regularly in these downtown celebrations of the Arts. Lucie's next showing will be the First Friday in April of this year (2015) at Hoppy's Froyo.
One of her series of paintings is a set of 4 different (acrylic) paintings with colorful backgrounds which she painted for Notecards. She is currently working on a series of paintings with a young girl on a bicycle as part of the theme, and also is working on a new Floral series for notecards.
Art is therapy, first to the artist who enjoys the whole painting process and then to the one viewing the art. Art should make the viewer think, take them to another place -- whether real or fantasy, and bring pure enjoyment. Some things are meant to be savored in life and art is one of them! God is the originator of all things beautiful and art is an expression of them!
