Through her artwork, Andrea Blackman shares special animals that are native to her area in Australia. She brings out the cute, playful, and even mischievous nature of wildlife such as magpies, kookaburras, and sugar gliders. She’s even been known to welcome adorable red pandas to her artistic world as well!
In an effort to reignite her creative passion, she embarked on a “Sketch a Day” challenge earlier this year. Considering all she has accomplished since then - taking part in an art market and having the first art gallery showing of her work - she has lots to share about her experiences.
On this episode, host Angela de Burger chats with Andrea about how she reignited her creative practice, her process for developing a new design concept, her experience participating in an art market and connecting with people about her work, as well as the inspiration she drew from being featured in her first art gallery show.
