Ursula Kelly: working full time and being an artist

Trade Secrets Episode 6: In this interview artist Ursula Kelly talks on keeping her practice going in the capital.

Artist and printmaker Ursula Kelly talks about how she manages to keep her practice going even while working full time, and how a residency she was awarded helped her as soon as she graduated.

Ursula was selected by Artquest and a number of partners organisations to take part in the first Circle Line award in 2008-2009.

This film was originally commissioned by Artquest for our tenth anniversary in 2010 as part of the Trade Secrets series, asking ten artists to reflect on their experiences and advice. Filming and editing by Matthew Crichtley; filmed on location at Conway Hall.
