with Dulcie Ball

Artist | Entrepreneur | Author

 

Dulcie is the epitome of everything she loves, surrounds herself with, and identifies with. A fervent advocate of the therapeutic power of creativity, Dulcie has an infectious enthusiasm for the art of drawing and, through the various initiatives of her Sketch Appeal brand, she brings her unique perspective to the London drawing scene.

As exciting as a party of mischievous girls, as colourful as a birthday balloon, and as playful and witty as a box of multicoloured crayons, Dulcie is a warm-hearted entrepreneur and an artist with a liberating, refreshing, bubbly and inclusive visual style.

Yet beneath her predominant exterior of joy and optimism, Dulcie possesses, above all, the courage and determination to deliver an offer that makes many happy while overcoming her own vulnerabilities and constant fears. At the time this interview was recorded, she was working on a draft of her first book of texts and illustrations, the production of an art exhibition on self-portraits and on the acceptance and validation of beauty itself in order to show life that she is ready to take on new challenges.

Sketch Appeal and Sketchy Bitches are a unique addition to London’s creative scene. And because they offer a clearly collaborative, active and cohesive idea of community, these projects are beginning to spread with a growing international force, especially through the social networks.

Find out how you can validate your own creative hurricane – and have fun in the process – by silencing your own self-destructive tendencies and not taking yourself too seriously, in this close encounter with Dulcie.

And now, enjoy the interview!

Dulcie è lei stessa l’epitome di tutte le cose che ama, con cui si circonda e con cui si identifica. Fervida sostenitrice del potere terapeutico della creatività, l’entusiasmo di Dulcie per l’arte del disegno è contagioso. Dulcie immette un’impronta unica nel panorama londinese del disegno attraverso le varie iniziative del suo marchio Sketch Appeal.

Vibrante come una festa di ragazze impertinenti, colorata come un palloncino di compleanno, giocosa e spiritosa come un astuccio di matite colorate, Dulcie è un’imprenditrice dal cuore caloroso, e un’artista dall’espressione creativa liberatrice, rinfrescante, effervescente e inclusiva.

Eppure, nonostante la sua facciata predominante di gioia e di ottimismo, Dulcie possiede soprattutto il coraggio e la determinazione necessari per poter costruire un’offerta che rende felici molti, superando le proprie vulnerabilità e le costanti paure. Per dimostrare alla vita di essere pronta ad affrontare nuove sfide, al momento della registrazione di questa intervista Dulcie stava lavorando alla stesura del suo primo libro di testi e illustrazioni e alla produzione di una mostra d’arte legata all’autoritratto e all’accettazione e convalida della bellezza stessa.

Sketch Appeal e Sketchy Bitches sono un riferimento unico nel panorama creativo londinese. E poiché offrono un’idea di comunità attiva, coesa e chiaramente collaborativa, questi progetti cominciano a diffondersi sempre più a livello internazionale. Soprattutto attraverso le reti sociali.

Con questo incontro ravvicinato con Dulcie, scoprirete come valorizzare il vostro uragano creativo e come divertirvi nel processo mettendo a tacere le vostre tendenze autodistruttive e senza prendervi troppo sul serio!

E ora, godetevi l’intervista!

Dulcie es en sí misma el epítome de todas las cosas que ama, con las que se rodea y con las que se identifica. Ferviente defensora del poder terapéutico de la creatividad, Dulcie posee un entusiasmo contagioso por el arte de dibujar, y gracias a las distintas iniciativas de su marca Sketch Appeal, le inyecta una estampa única a la escena del dibujo al vivo en la ciudad de Londres.

Vibrante como una fiesta de niñas traviesas, colorida como un globo de cumpleaños, y juguetona e ingeniosa como una cartuchera de creyones de colores, Dulcie es una emprendedora de iniciativas llenas de calidez, y una artista con un expresión plástica liberadora, refrescante, efervescente e incluyente.

Sin embargo, a pesar de su predominante fachada de júbilo y optimismo, Dulcie posee sobre todo la valentía y la determinación necesarias para ser capaz de construir una oferta que hace a muchos feliz, superando sus propias vulnerabilidades y sus constantes miedos. Y para demostrarle a la vida que está lista para asumir nuevos retos, para el momento en el que esta entrevista fue grabada, Dulcie estaba trabajando en el borrador de su primer libro de textos e ilustraciones, y en la producción de una exhibición de arte relacionada con el autorretrato y la aceptación y validación de la propia belleza.

Sketch Appeal y Scketchy Bitches, constituyen una referencia única en la escena creativa londinense. Y gracias a que ofrecen una idea de comunidad, activa, cohesionada y a todas luces colaboracionista, estos proyectos comienzan a divulgarse cada vez con más fuerza internacional. Especialmente a través de las redes.

Descubre gracias a este encuentro cercano con Dulcie, como validar tu propio huracán creador y como divertirte con el proceso acallando tus propias tendencias auto destructivas y sin tomarte a ti misma demasiado en serio!

¡Y ahora, disfruten la entrevista!
