Lucy Laino is a re-emerging artist and experienced art teacher, and the founder of Mark Makers Art Studio in Tewantin. Returning to Noosa after an 18 year sojourn in Tasmania, she draws upon the natural environment exploring shapes, pattern and texture, with a focus on repetition in order to create new narratives and interpretations. Obsessed with fine lines and details she works primarily on paper and canvas, experimenting with an ever-changing array of mediums and processes including printmaking, photography and collage. 

Lucy was a finalist in the recent Local Contemporary Art Prize: Reflections on Here and Now at the Caloundra Regional Gallery and recently completed an artist residency in Eumundi, courtesy of Tall Trees Art Inc. She was fortunate to receive a Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) grant, supported by the QLD Government and Noosa Council, for a community art project titled ‘Postcard Sized Perspectives’. The project will commence in June 2024 and conclude with a community exhibition on September 5th. If you would like to participate in Postcard Sized Perspectives, please see the link below.

The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Noosa Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
