Camie Lyons

Camie Lyons is a Sydney-based artist that works across a variety of mediums including sculpture, painting and drawing. Lyons’ artistic practice is largely inspired by and incorporates her intuition and experience as a contemporary dancer, as she explores the free-flowing possibility of lines, form and movement created by the human body. Lyons studied Fine Arts at RMIT in Melbourne and later completed her Masters at the College of Fine Art (COFA), UNSW in Sydney. She has held several solo exhibitions with Olsen Irwin Gallery in Sydney and Scott Livesey in Melbourne, and has showed internationally at Australasian Art Projects and the Australian High Commission in Singapore, as well as The Cat Street Gallery in Hong Kong.

Lyons has travelled extensively throughout her life and has been an Artist in Residence in Sweden, Bulgaria, Bull Bay (TAS) and most recently at the Haefligers cottage in Hill End (NSW) in 2019, which resulted in her first solo regional museum exhibition at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery. In 2019, Lyons completed four large scale drawing commissions for Tiffany & Co. which are now on permanent display at their new flagship store in Sydney, and most recently was awarded Highly Commended in the Live in Art 2020 Art Prize and is currently a finalist in the Ravenswood Australian Women’s Art Prize. Her work is in several public and private collections in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sweden, France, London, Thailand and New York.
