Lucy Cobos graduated from the New England School of Photography as a “high honors” recipient. Shortly after graduating , she was hired to help establish the first photography department at the NBC affiliate station in Boston. For 10 years she created imagery for billboards, media publications, exhibits and animation. She has been recognized by the industry with awards for her photography in broadcast design. She went on to open her own studio where she continued her photo work for another 25 yrs.
After 35 yrs. as a commercial photographer, Lucy relocated to Asheville, NC with her husband Bill and dog Lolita, to write a new chapter in her life. She joined the River Arts District, leased a studio and now explores other art mediums, often using her photography as reference material. Her main medium is pastel, but the looseness and fluidity of cold wax/oils and encaustics are something she enjoys experimenting with. She likes to say that it works the other half of her brain. Her art work is now on display at Pink Dog Gallery in Asheville, NC.
