LUCY MCEACHERN

A renowned, bronze sculptor drawing inspiration from rural Australia, McEachern developed a deep affinity with the enchanting birds which dwell in the local landscape after growing up in rural Victoria.

McEachern’s sculptures can be found throughout Australia and collections worldwide and not only capture the subject’s individual characteristics but also invite the viewer to feel the contours in a celebration of form and presence.

McEachern’s sculptures have been to Birds in Art, America (Wisconsin) and her work is held in the permanent collection of the Leigh Yawky Woodson Art Museum.
