Guest Interview with Fibre Artist Alicia Evans from Long Island, New York - Episode 22

Now Live!! My interview with Alicia Evans - Fibre Artist from Long Island New York - Episode 22 

"If it's not about a tree, it's about art, and about the art of living…" 

I was so inspired to chat with Fibre Artist Alicia Evans and talk about how her art and how she pays homage to and raises awareness of trees and their impact on our world. Alicia crochets abstract trees (creates crocheted fine artwork organically branded with nature's gifts, including wool, bamboo, sea grass, wood, beads and more) and uses colour in her art to  facilitate meaningful conversations about trees and to encourage people to stop, pause and be aware of trees and how vulnerable trees have become in our world today. It made for a fascinating and enlightening conversation… and this is only one of the topics we touched upon. With six years as a professional artist, Alicia has exhibited her art since 2011 in New York  and Long Island, conducts workshops, does commissioned work and is also an Art Curator.

Alicia will leave you feeling that truly, all things are possible with art once we step outside our comfort zone, allow it in and go and be about our business as creatives.

Listen up and listen in to what Alicia has to say about:

  • Trees, Anxiety and when trees talk…
  • The power of Art to heal…
  • Re-examining the work we do as artists…
  • Raising awareness and being in the forefront of change…
  • Creative ways to use Social Media PR as creatives…
  • Living the creative life to the full and…
  • The importance of Plan B

And so much more!

Alicia's joy and enthusiasm is infectious and you will be inspired by her story, her journey and her wise tips for creatives as we navigate a world where anxiety seems to lurk around every corner. How fabulous and uplifting it was to chat with her and learn about her craft… and what a fun time we had! We'll definitely be chatting again in the near future.
