My Bio

I'm Frédérique Lucas, though many will know me as Namu. I like whales. And steam engines, too! Which may come as a surprise to some people (including me, at first). Mostly I paint and draw, but sometimes I write stories too, and from time to time I pretend to be a photographer. It’s perhaps an odd marriage, wildlife and steam engines, but both have a firm place in my heart and thus my art and neither will be leaving any time soon.

• How about commissions?

Always open! Contact me if you’re interested.

• May I use your painting for my website/blog/avatar/dankest new YouTube video/??

If you want to use my art for anything, or post it anywhere, please contact me first! My art is not stock that can be used for free, and since art is my job, it can hurt my income directly when art is stolen or even sold without proper credits. So just shoot me a message, and most of the time I'll say yes.

Contact: email me at or send a note here!

Oh you're very welcome! I liked your train painting, it was very dynamic and dramatic. Also I did not know of those Shinkansen trains yet, they are beautiful in that blue colour!

Many thanks:)
