Yvette Lucas is a photographer, printmaker, and curator who finds her primary inspiration in nature. Her focus has been to illustrate our connection to the natural world by revealing the personality of a place or subject as she sees it. The intention is that the viewer will feel an emotional draw to these nature “portraits” as they would a human subject. Every image is named based on the character or the place it depicts and/or the effect of the environment on the subject.
Yvette’s formal training culminated with a BFA from The Cooper Union, in NYC and supplemented by additional studies at Mason Gross School of the Arts, NJ and The School of Visual Arts, NYC. Yvette has participated in solo, curated, and juried exhibitions and has extensive relationships with community art centers and commercial galleries.
She has served the local arts community for 16 years on the board of Studio Montclair and teaches art classes at JSDD’s Wae Center. Yvette is represented by the Sohn Fine Art Gallery in Lennox, Massachusetts and The Old Print Shop In New York City, NYC.
