Lucie Blaze is a graphic designer, art tutor and practising artist. Originally from the Czech Republic, Blaze resides in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa. She moved here 2014 and has embraced the culture and art scene over the past few years. She studied graphic design in Czech Republic and visual communication in Paris and recently completed her a postgraduate diploma in art therapy after personally experiencing the healing properties of making art and craft.
In Blaze’s words: ‘As a formal graphic designer, it’s another world for me when I can lose control over my artistic outcome, dive into my psyche and let it express what needs to be expressed. My artworks are an invitation to explore your psyche and try uncontrolled creativity, as you might be surprised by the beauty it brings to the surface. Colour plays a major part in my paintings. Through my artwork,I try to bring the inside life to the outside and share it with you.’
