About Lucia Heffernan
Lucia Heffernan's body of work is an expression and exploration of her lifelong fascination with animals. Through her paintings, she seeks to give animals a voice and a personality, while making light of our uniquely human existence. By imagining what animals might do if put in human situations, she stages tableaus that shine a spotlight on both their innocence and raw instinct. This collision between animal and human sensibilities creates a whimsical, theatrical, and often humorous world that viewers can relate to on an emotional level.
