LIBERTY IS A FINE ARTIST, DEVON GIRL & MAKER
In my works you will discover an unapologetic infatuation with all things blue, and the healing powers that this beautiful colour can bring. My work explores themes of finding your voice, nature and embracing imperfections.
Favourite visuals include florals and the female form; a seemingly perfect combination for cyanotypes.
ABOUT THE STUDIO
After graduating from Arts University Bournemouth, I moved into the world of admin; holding art as a passion and hobby on the side. During the first 2020 UK lockdown, I returned to her hometown of Torquay and had an "if not now, then when!?" moment and decided it was time to finally take my art career seriously. So, with no more excuses, quit my unfulfilling job and life in Surrey and got to making full-time; Liberty Feist Studio was born.
In it’s current incarnation, the studio is a converted bedroom in my parents’ house, for private use only… one day, it will be something spectacular to welcome you into.
The studio is open to the public by appointment only, and for local pick-up of purchased items. Please get in touch if you are interested in visiting, or subscribe to my newsletter for updates on any upcoming workshops and events.
COLOUR OF SELF-EXPRESSION & EMPOWERMENT
I've always been drawn to blue, and throughout my experience with cyanotypes, I've felt a sort of inexplicable power from the artform and process.
Lately, all the pieces seem to be falling into place and it's all becoming clearer - blue is empowering! Cyanotypes allowed me to voice myself in ways I hadn't been able to before, then I learnt about how to support and balance your chakras. How the colour blue supports the Throat Chakra... you know, your voice, communication, creativity, self-expression... I'd say that was definitely something worth supporting.
So here I am, standing loud and proud for the Girls Supporting Girls movement, I'm here to make art to raise you up, and I'm raising myself in the process. So let's be high-vibing blue bitches together - you with me!?
MY 'FUCK OFF' CLAUSE
This studio business is my pride and passion, that's why I've put my name on it and invested all my savings into it!
Both the business and I, are still finding our feet, learning, growing and figuring out our place in this big wide world...
My right to fuck off, whenever I like:
I am an artist... my schedule is unpredictable, I make no promises about my availability or work-pattern
This is my passion - but it's not my only job
I will often drop tools to go and look after one of my many niblings (human & hound)
I will not work if it poses the slightest threat to my mental or physical health - everything else can wait
The lifestyle I have chosen means I am often off volunteering
I make no promises
I will reply if/when it feels right
Liberty Feist Studio will not tolerate:
Sexism, racism, anti-LGBTQI+, religious etc abuse, comments (in any context)
Suggestive comments, unsolicited advancements or stalkerish behaviour
Aggression, abuse, or lack of respect for boundaries
Liberty Feist (Studio) may, where necessary, politely tell you to fuck off, if you fail to respect the studio, the person or the things I care about.
