rust. tea. stitching. soft earthy tones. natural materials.
delicate and decisive work.
sensitivity and restraint.
meet the wonderful alice fox,
a uk artist working in mixed media.
i am thrilled to introduce her,
as she graciously shares with us her work,
inspiration, and creative process.
some things you love:
pottering in my garden; eating things I’ve grown;
the feel of my children’s hands in mine;
making music with others; wind in my hair;
dirty feet from having them bare all day;
an open fire; being read to in bed;
the smells of the seasons…
some things you love about yourself
(go ahead, brag a little):
leading a full and stimulating life
what you're working on at the moment:
my residency exhibition in the old lighthouse
at Spurn Point. It’s a really challenging
space and I’m excited and scared
by it in equal measure.
where do you draw inspiration from?
the detail of the natural world;
the way material is sorted by wind and water;
macro and micro landscapes.
what is your creativity nemesis?
feeling the need to deal with paper work
in order to clear the way for the creative stuff…
it’s difficult to switch off
from the list of things that should be done.
and your most effective weapon against it?
keeping to a routine and assigning time for each.
something you've learned the hard way:
you can’t always count on support
from those you hoped it would come from.
would you please recommend a book?
The Wild Places, Robert Macfarlane
favorite natural food to snack on:
anything picked straight off the plant
when i say feminine you say...
something you need to do less of:
sit in front of my computer
something you need to do more of:
your perfect day:
walking, drawing, singing
thank you, alice for giving us a glimpse
into your inspiring path!
