Excerpt:
Artist Sarah
Sculley – IndieLove Magazine Article
NYT bestselling
Author Nashoda Rose Interview with IndieLove Magazine
When was it that
you decided that being an artist was your calling?
Yesterday. True! I graduated from the Queensland College of
Art in 2002 as one of many fresh-faced graphic designers. As the years went on,
the briefs came in, the changes, and changes, and late nights, and more
changes, and the all-nighters, more changes and then having my creative ideas
smooshed, I decided that maybe being a graphic designer was a bit soul
destroying. So I painted and created as an outlet.
I showed my work when I lived in China and had sell-out
shows. When I moved home to Brisbane I thought I had to become a grown-up. Buy
a house, settle down, procreate – all those picket-fence, 2.5 kids ideals.
Silly me. I worked my tail off as a designer for a company that ended up making
me redundant, one week before I was due back from maternity leave. It was an
amazing blessing. It gave me the time, creativity and freedom to put everything
I had into a solo show at Jugglers earlier this year. In my eyes, it was a
massive success. I am entirely proud.
Since that show I’ve had so many opportunities become
available for me to truly do what I believe is my calling – art. Yesterday was
the first spare second I’ve had to sit down and think ‘oh my, everything is falling
into place. I’m entirely happy, grateful and I feel like the real me. The
universe is working with me and right here and now is where I am meant to be.’
This is that happiness that everyone has been talking about! Huh!
