Background

Lucinda Jane Lang

After obtaining a degree at the National Art school, Sydney Lucinda had a 30 year career in Graphic design, working in Sydney, London, Dublin and finally Canberra. She then went on to obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Australian National University. She started painting in watercolour in retirement.

Lucinda was born and raised on the Monaro and still spends time on the family sheep and cattle property near Cooma. The Monaro is an endless source of inspiration for her to paint its many moods and changing colours. She likes being in the landscape, painting ‘en plain air’ surrounded by the little sounds of nature and the feel of the wind.

She is an exhibiting member of Canberra Art Workshop (CAW) at M16 in Griffith Canberra ACT, and also sells her work through the Raglan Gallery, Cooma. Lucinda facilitates a weekly portrait painting group at CAW. She is also kept busy as a volunteer guide at the National Gallery of Australia.
