The Creative Life: A Mixed Media Blog

Do you dream of living The Creative Life? Well, Ricë Freeman-Zachery lives it, eats it, breathes it and sleeps it! In her mixed media blog, explores matters of creativity, art, living the life and more! Some days the prolific Ricë takes on the hot topics of the day—social media, for example. Some days she doles out artist advice, relying on her tenure as a working artist to help her help others. Some days she shares a slice of her life as an artist—warts and all! We think Ricë’s is one of the best art blogs around—and we think you’ll agree.
