Like her brothers Thomas and Walter, Lucy showed artistic taste and talent from an early age. She was particularly skilled at coloring and drawing.

However, social circumstances did not allow women to pursue a career as an artist, so she turned to teaching and playing music. She was noted as an accomplished musician. In her spare time she wrote verses and prose, some of which were published. She also helped her brother by selecting the music to accompany the nursery songs in Walter Crane's Baby's Opera and Baby's Bouquet. She also translated sections of the Brothers Grimm, which were then illustrated by Walter.

Later in life, she gave lectures on Art and the Formation of Taste both in London and in the northern parts of Britain. After her death, her lectures were collected and published in a book illustrated by her brothers Thomas and Walter.
