Art Success: Adelaide Damoah in conversation with Rachel Ara. Rachel Ara recently started practising as a professional artist three years ago and has already won the internationally acclaimed Aesthetica Award (2016). Having graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths University in 1998, Ara decided to pursue a career in computer systems design. After more than 25 years working in this field, Ara decided to pursue her art career and has incorporated many exciting elements of her extensive knowledge and experience as a computer systems designer into her artistic practice.

You can visit her studio and see first hand her work in progress, as well as some of the work mentioned in this video, during the Open Studio event this year. The event runs from the 2nd to the 5th of June 2016 and all are welcome. Rachel's studio is in Unit 5 and is studio number 105. Come and visit!

I make figuritive oil paintings and am currently exploring story telling using figures and text on the painting surface. The Art Success series of interviews started off in 2011 with written interviews for my blog. I started this project because coming from a science/business background, I had to rethink what success looked like to me and wanted to figure out what it took to become that in this unique business. In talking to other artists in this way on camera, I hope to pass on useful information to other artists and art lovers. Fellow artists can watch and learn from their contemporaries and art lovers can discover new art. Of course, there is the added benefit of promoting my colleagues to new audiences.
