One of Yorkshire’s rising stars of the art world has been unveiled as the official artist for the 2017 Tour de Yorkshire.
Richmond-based pastel artist Lucy Pittaway is the UK Fine Art Trade Guild’s current ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’, and this is the second consecutive year she has been chosen by Welcome to Yorkshire to create a piece of art designed to capture the imagination of the people of Yorkshire, and the spirit of the race.
