When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object.

About The Artist

Lucy Williams is a Cleveland-based artist and the illustrator and designer
behind Boundary & Thorn.

Lucy received her BFA in Illustration from the Cleveland Institute of Art
in 2013. After working for several years with an advertising agency,
she struck out on her own as an independent freelancer.

Today, Lucy's custom prints, packaging design and hand-lettering can be
found in several local restaurants and shops around the city. If she's not
working in her home studio, you can find her eating at one of Cleveland's
amazing restaurants, organizing anything she can get her hands on or
snuggling up with her two kitties.


A Word From Lucy

I started making a new body of work in 2015, but never thought I'd end up
starting a business. At my first job out of college, I found myself caught up in
new projects, learning the ropes of working for large clients, and handling
multiple projects at once. While working for an agency was fulfilling, I realized
I had stopped creating work for myself. I had always enjoyed making art for
friends and family, but had never really made anything I'd like to buy myself.

In January of 2016 I started selling prints at the Cleveland Flea summer events.
By August I made Boundary & Thorn an official LLC and haven't looked back!
In return, I opened a lot of unexpected doors I didn’t realize existed until I took
the leap and made work for myself.
