When my studio construction yesterday was going to shit, the farmer who I rent the land from said to me, Lucy nothing happens without a reason, everything is to show us how we can be tested. At the moment I am trying to figure out how to deal with everything.
My main solution is to shut everything down for a while. This new studio symbolises the start of everything. And I want to give it my all.
So I am putting instagram on hold. It has been good to me, a great portal to reaching out to people I would never of met before. And it has been very good for my work and commissions. But it also has been a huge problem for copyright, and the endless onslaught of similar work being posted up places, is depressing. I wont close the account just post up notifications as and when I have something to announce. I am trying to battle against my fear that i am doing the wrong thing by not promoting myself as much, but I have to work out how I can make the world of social media work for me.
And at the end of the day:
If you want to buy my work: go to my etsy shop
If you want to see my work: come to an exhibition
If you want to talk to me: email me
If you want to do all of the above: come to an open studio day.
