Onwards…. Who am I to be an Artist

Gosh – almost 2 years have passed since my 1st excited posts and my question ‘Who am I to be an Artist? In that time both tragedy and joy has visited many of us. Please forgive me for my absence and join me once again on this creative journey.

In the last 8 months I’ve been experimenting with different mediums and exploring ways to connect with lots of lovely people through my art. During lockdown I spent time sketching scenes local to my home in Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland. As you will see from the picture below these sketches have now become paintings and will soon be available online as greetings cards.

In December 2021 a wonderful synchronistic event happened, I was chatting to a few local shop owners regarding my artwork and the possibility of them stocking my cushions, cards and paintings when I was made aware of a pop up Christmas Emporium being arranged by a local lady, the owner of an online business supplying beautiful and unique gifts to visitors from all over the world. We quickly connected and realised that we wanted to collaborate. The Christmas Emporium was a wonderful success and there’s still more exciting news from Raspberryfieldsexclusive.co.uk to follow in my next post

My first market stall was held in April of this year and it was so lovely to connect with other artists and artisans and hear of their stories. I do hope to meet you at one of my next stalls, I’ll post dates and venues on my Facebook page Art By Debra Rice do join me there for updates. So I guess It’s time to revisit the question I asked in my previous post Who am I to be an Artist? and restart my creative journey, I do hope that you’ll join me over the next weeks and months.
