The Art First Interiors Podcast Episode 2 - A Chat With Artist Rachel Louise Lee. Picture of One of Rachel's Artworks on a bench with a vase of dried flowers

Podcast chat with Rachel Louise Lee

This week I visit the studio of Rachel Louise Lee, one of our Art Room Artists to chat about life beyond art school and her creative process. Rachel Graduated in 2015 and has since set up studio in her home to continue her practice. We chat about the importance of environment when creating and how a studio location and set up can affect your productivity and mindset.

Rachel talks about her journey through art school and how being surrounded by other creatives led her to explore techniques of making in a more experimental way. She progressed onto printmaking which gave her the hands on tools and graphic technique she craved to express herself through a  layering of thoughts written in text, photographic images and painted textures to build up surreal landscapes and portraits. Inspired by artists such as Anselm Kiefer , she uses spontaneous mark making on paper to work over screen printed images resulting in fresh exciting images that have movement and gesture ‘woven’ into their surface.

We chat about the challenges of leaving the comfort of an artschool where a lot of the technical equipment is provided and how to keep the creative juices flowing when you’re faced with the everyday reality of earning a living out in the world; how to maintain quality and integrity in your work  when dealing with the pressures of selling.

Rachel is one of our most popular artists and we have sold many of artworks around the world, she talks about how travel and a change of environment feeds her creativity and the inspiration behind many of her pieces. I was interested how she feels about her work being displayed in people’s homes, from the moment it leaves her studio to sometimes seeing it for the first time on someone’s wall on Instagram!
