Today we hear from award winning south coast artist Faye Bridgwater. Faye makes bright, uplifting paintings from her home studio, but it hasn’t always been this way…. At various steps over the last few years some bold moves have been needed. We talk about growing in to your own space and investing in yourself. While it’s up to you to be your own advocate we also discuss how you can work to your own strengths by involving others to support different elements of being an artist. And we discuss a risky move Faye has made in attempt to reach a wider audience on the eve of Brighton’s Artist Open Houses.
You can visit in person throughout May, or check the link below to discover a wealth of artists to explore online.
