Edwina Lucas was born and raised on Long Island, New York. The arts have always played a major role in her life. At the age of five, Lucas was taught the fundamentals of oil painting by her mother and fell in love with the medium.
In 2013 she graduated Summa Cum Laude from Skidmore College with a major in Studio Art and minor in Art History. Her senior thesis, a triptych portraying figures in water, earned honors from the department.
Today, Lucas lives and works in Sag Harbor, NY. In her paintings, she strives to capture the beauty of the natural world and the transformative power of light.
Lucas makes an effort to work from life and in natural light. She continues to find the joy and satisfaction in painting that drew her to the medium as a child.
