Lucy has developed a deep affinity with the enchanting birds that dwell in the local landscape. Lucy's tactile sculptures not only capture her subjects individual characteristics, but also invite the viewer to feel its contours in a celebration of their majestic presence.
Lucy McEachern has quickly established herself as a leading sculptor of birds. Her chosen medium for this is bronze. The simplified and elegant lines of her words make them very tactile and a pleasure to behold. When not sculpting, she runs a property at Wingeel west of Geelong. She is often inspired when doing stock work as she rides past plantations and grasslands and is able to observe birds in their natural habitat. Annual re-vegetation projects have helped to increase bird life on the farm quite noticeably. She is also lucky enough to live by a creek where there is an abundance of water birds at her front door to observe. Whether it is a finch that darts from post to post, a Brolga that dances with its mate or a wedge tailed eagle that glides in the thermals high above there is a never ending supply of subject matter for her to work with. Lucy has had many successes and accolades, one of the most recent was the selection in the prestigious "Birds in Art 2018" exhibition at the Woodson Museum in Winconsin USA for the seventh year. An International Art Exhibition in which only 3 Australians were selected. Her sculpture was also chosen to tour the US for 12 months with other selected entrants.
