Lucy Liew is a Malaysian-American artist whose paintings have been described as a “rich tapestry of color” a reference to her colorful, multi-layered painting style. Viewers of her works are invited on a magical journey through vivid botanical compositions that are a fusion of the real and the fantastic.
Liew’s work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions including Marin MOCA, Stanford University, the Triton Museum of Art, and the San Jose Museum of Art. Liew’s artworks are in the permanent collection of Kaiser Permanente in Santa Rosa, Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital, UCSF Family Medicine Center in San Francisco, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford, and Valley Children’s Hospital of Madera. She was also commissioned by the City of San Jose for two installations at the Joyce Ellington Branch Library. In 2014, her artwork was presented as a diplomatic gift by U.S. President Barak Obama to King Halim of Malaysia.
