Lucy Kemp-Welch was born in Bournemouth and as a child went on regular trips to the New Forest which inspired and developed the twin passions of her life, painting and horses. She went on to study at Sir Hubert von Herkomer’s School of Art at Bushey, Hertfordshire and later took over the running of the school. Kemp-Welch believed in painting out of doors and made numerous ‘snapshots in oil’ which were quick oil sketches used to develop larger works.
