About Lucy Simpson
Lucy Simpson is a Sydney-based artist and designer with a focus on storytelling and narrative to share aspects of country and contemporary South Eastern Aboriginal culture. She is a Yuwaalaraay woman belonging to the freshwater country of the Walgett and Angledool areas of North West New South Wales, an area from which she draws inspiration for much of her work. She founded design studio and label ‘Gaawaa Miyay’ in 2009 and continues as the Artistic Director and Principal Designer.
Upon graduation in 2010 with a Bachelor of Design at the College of Fine Arts (now UNSW Art and Design), Simpson received the COFA Object Award in Design and the Longina Phillips Textiles Award. Lucy has exhibited works in group shows at Object Australian Design Centre, Blacktown Arts Centre, Casula Powerhouse, as part of the London Design Festival and at the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad India. In 2014 Lucy was named one of the four recipients of the British Council’s Indigenous Creative Leadership Program.
