Lucy McKie Elected Full Member of the ROI

Portrait and still lufe painter Lucy McKie has been elected to full membership of the ROI from Associate Membership. She is one of three new members along with Bill Dean and Nicholas Verrall.
Born in 1974, Lucy McKie has painted since childhood and has always had a real love of portraiture. Although Lucy specialises in portraits, she also paints still life, and enjoys painting both subjects for their very different challenges. Most of her time is spent on commissioned portraits which provide a really exciting and interesting variety of sitters. She has won awards including The Barbara Tate Oil Award, The Daler and Rowney People's Choice Award, C.Roberson Award (2006 & 2007), a Stanley Grimm Award, The L.Cornelissen Award, and the second place Winsor and Newton Young Artists Award.  Here are some examples of Lucy's work.

Congratulations to Lucy and more news on the other new members and associate members in the next few days.


  1. Congratulations Lucy, well deserved!

  2. Your work is amazing, beautiful and intelligent. An inspiration for someone like me who aims to be on the same path...
    All the best,
