Lury has been working as a street painter and pencil artist for the last 10 years. She has an adult education teaching background and she has taught a number of workshops in street painting and pencil work and continues to work with students in an effort to demonstrate to any and everyone that they are capable of drawing. Lury spent several years working in an Atelier setting in the Bay Area sharpening her skill set and is passionate about sharing this with others. She is excited about helping people improve the level of realism they can achieve with graphite work. In her own work, she has been drawn to share her interpretations of people. She is passionate about showing feeling and relaying connection within people's eyes in her work. Lury's subject matter varies, but she most often finds herself returning to people in her work.
