From the Bookshelf
During my week off I took the opportunity to revisit these three books by Rice Freeman-Zachary. They are all great. She has a wonderful style (those of you who read any Stampington publications will be familiar with her artisit profiles) and seems to have a delicious knack of asking the questions we all what the answers to!
The books cover art retreats, art studios, time (and space) management, the ins and outs of daily life as a professional artist and, as they say, so much more. Many of our favourite mixed media creatives are interviewed and provide an interesting insight on how many different approaches there are - "what works is what works for you." I found new things this second time around and re-enjoyed what I'd remembered from before. All three definitely belong on your mixed media bookshelf . For a daily dose of Rice visit her blog Notes from theVoo-Doo Cafe.
