From early childhood, the artist, who is widely known today, has been involved in painting (using her mouth and one foot). At the beginning she taught herself, later on she had lessons with an academic painter. On the occasion of the "International Women's Day" Lucy Chow Davis received an award for her achievements from the ombudsman in San Andrés on a recommendation of the municipality. She has also participated in several exhibitions and workshops.
