Recent Interview – Beth Nicholas

Here’s part of a recent Artist Interview with Beth Nicholas, you can find more here


Beth Nicholas is working in an Artist In Residents position in England and is allowing us to get an inside view of the role, and her part in it. I thinks it’s a great chance for us to all learn more about ways artists can interact with various communities and in this case a secondary school environment. lets look into whats, taking place.


Beth, where is the residency based?
Wycombe Abbey School – High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire is a private all girls boarding school is considered to be one of the best schools in England.

    Your insights regarding the struggle for ideas really resonated with me. I have also taken to heart the “Art & Fear” message and so…don’t have trouble turning up to the studio and working. But lately, the struggle has been enormous and I have failed to listen to the little voice inside, telling me to take time off (I need to produce to eat). Sounds like it’s time to back off and get out of my own way- hopefully, to let some of that “compulsive” inspiration have a voice, and a chance to be acted upon. I also have a residency in Almeria, Spain next year -will travel via London, perhaps we can meet up?

    Hi Gabrielle,

    Thank you so much for your comment, I’d love to meet up, your work is fascinating- let me know when you here, perhaps Steve has a way of giving you my e-mail address? I had a really good go at “The artists Way” by Julia Cameron as well but unfortunately only lasted four weeks I will get back to it, it really helped me. It’s a REALLY good book, it’s a 15 week course designed to help artists find a spiritual path to creativity. Basically I think it teaches you that “routine is the birthplace of creativity”, maybe you’ve read it already, if not you should get a copy.
