Artist, Designer & Advocate
Lucie Shearer is an artist & illustrator working out of her home studio in Columbus, Ohio.
Her surreal, fantasy works discuss themes such as love, intuition, emotional exploration and human connection. Each piece tells a metaphorical story through the use of body language, composition, light, and symbolism. Some common imagery includes feminine figures, hands, the moon and stars, moths and other winged creatures, water, and unusual glowing objects. Figures will often have misplaced pieces like a game of jenga. She wants her work to create an experience of connection and understanding.
Shearer has shown in galleries such as Rivet, Ohio Art League X Space, Wild Goose Creative, Gallery1988, Jackie O’s Brewery, 400 West Rich, Blockfort and 934 Gallery. Her work has also been shown at events such the Greater Columbus Arts Festival, Craftin’ Outlaws, GenCon and Prints & Pints.
Lucie has worked with clients, organizations and events such as Independents’ Day Festival, Urban Scrawl, Columbus Women & Girl’s Fest, 934 Fest, 934 Gallery, Franklinton Arts Distrtict, Nocterra, Land Grant, North High Brewing, Ebb & Float, Game Arena, Worthington Industries,Lane Bryant, BalletMet, CCAD and Gravity Apartments/Kaufmann Group, among others.
