Wildlife Murals

Lacy’s work — which adorns the barn of her family’s home in Jericho, as well as sites in San Francisco and New York City — is inspired by the natural world. That doesn’t mean it lacks “deeper” content.

“Many muralists’ works have ‘issues,'” she says. “They’re about class or race; some are about industry. I don’t want to be depressing about the environment, but I want that to be part of what my work is. So I’m trying to bring nature back into these spaces … aesthetically.”
