Lucy Tabberer completed her Fine Art BA Hons in Painting at Norwich School of Art and has worked as a professional painter and teacher since graduating. She taught GCSE and A-Level Art and worked with excluded teenagers before becoming Head of Art at Sandroyd, followed by Hanford School, before joining Port Regis in 2022. Lucy paints from a studio in her garden, working under her maiden name Lucy Bentley. Her work is inspired by things that give her joy – primarily the garden! She has exhibited her colourful narrative paintings widely in galleries and is currently writing and illustrating a children’s picture book as a collaboration with her daughter, Ottilie.
Lucy has been the Artist in Residence at Horatio’s Garden, Salisbury Hospital (one of the school’s charities) over the last few years. This summer she will be running art workshops for patients and their families, using the garden as inspiration. Lucy spends much of her free time visiting galleries and studios and gaining ideas to bring back into the classroom.
