Rise Art: Guest Curator
Posted on 09 October 2016
Artwork is a very important part of any interior design, it allows us to add a personal and detailed layer to our home, expressing ourselves in every way imaginable. Whilst it is a necessity to interior design, artwork can be one of the most difficult items discover and purchase a design that is just right. After being introduced to Rise Art a few months back, I was very impressed to discover that you can rent artwork as well as purchase it from their huge collection of works. Renting is a fantastic idea, one that I would love to see more of as it allows you to try out a style before you commit to a purchase and for those that love change, allows you to regularly rotate works to keep a room fresh.
This week, I have had the pleasure of curating a collection of my favourite designs for the Rise Art website. I have selected thirty designs, ranging from drawings to prints and paintings which can be viewed on the Rise Art Blog. Below are my top ten favourites that I wanted to share with you.
#1161114 - Jemma Appleby

Whilst it sounds easy, limiting my selection to just thirty designs was incredibly difficult and narrowing this down to ten for my blog has been even more so. The range of artists, styles and mediums available is very impressive and has sent my own creativity into overdrive. My top ten selection above (in no particular order) consist of paintings, drawings, prints and photography that stop me in my tracks and lure me in. They showcase the diversity and talent that surrounds us and represent some of the finest works that I feel Rise Art has to offer. #1161114 - Jemma Appleby | Birds - Tommy Clarke | Brilliance in Colour - Victoria Horkan | Busy - Paul Brown | Chapel - Gina Soden | Eastwood, Roosevelt Islant, NYC - Sarah Evans | Follow the Yellow Brick Road - Anna Marrow | Harbour 11 - Patricia McParlin | Never Rest - Paul Bennett | Urban Geometry, Oxford Street - Nick Miners.
