A little about Tide & Isle
Lucy Lo-Vel grew up first in the beautiful North Cornwall fishing village of Boscastle before the family upped sticks and moved to the island of Lundy when she was eight years old.
It is fair to say that both these stunning locations gave her a love of the seaside, the rugged cliffs, and the flora and fauna to be found there.

It's in the family...
Whilst not formally trained in art and design the family is full of creatives. Her Grandfather worked all his life as an artist, both freelance and then employed by the National Trust.
His work is now quite collectible, especially in Lundy circles and whilst he passed away in 2004 it is with absolute delight that Tide & Isle is able to use his designs and continue spreading some of that Lundy magic.

Lucy currently has work hanging in both The Pier House in Westward Ho!, and Josie’s Interiors in Bideford and has also produced shades for Katherine Barber Interior Design and Cool Calm Collected Interiors.
When not in the studio Lucy is often found on the beaches of the South West, gaining inspiration - probably in a pair of brightly coloured leggings with a couple of dogs in tow. She is also a cold water swimmer and aims to get in the sea as much as she can. You can view her Instagram stories to see some of these sea dips and any Lundy visits.
She also volunteers as Lifeboat crew at her local station so can be found dashing off to that when the pager sounds. Life is rather busy, but she truly wouldn’t have it any other way.
