Take Five with Elise Liversedge

Elise Liversedgeworks alongside  Mary Hooper in their creative consultancy ONE TWO ONE art and architecture.  The collaborative partnership was founded in 2004 by architect/artist Elise and artist/curator Mary Hooper and they have developed a practice with a focus on the exploration of what is meant by a ‘sense of place’ and what significance this has to a collective and individual sense of identity and wellbeing. They have 20 years collective experience of delivering public art and projects that help to create community sustainability through cultural development. As a creative partnership they have a commitment to innovation and excellence, underpinned by their collaborative and personal practice and have experience of working with diverse social and ethnic groups in local communities, and professionals in the arts, healthcare, museums, galleries, and local government.  For a more detailed CV have a look at the "i " book on the network page on the  ONE TWO ONE website.   Elise also "practises as an architect when I can get the work and also thinks wistfully about my 'fine art' background".  She is currently working on an idea for a drawing installation - 'silver birch' with poet Gregory Warren Wilson. 

In your professional life, what is the single best thing about what you do?  
The best thing about what I do is quite simply that what is open to us all: the development of  something from nothing.

Do you have a creative hero / heroine and if so, why?
I admire other peoples abilities especially those who do the things that I wish I could - anyone who can play  an instrument well or speak another languages fluently - skills that  open up another world of both  creativity and  opportunity.    

What piece of advice do you wish you had been given at the beginning of your career?
To be more confident with your marketing and aim high from the start and also to develop a very  thick skin from the start so it's easier  to deal with all the different responses that come our way,  as being very good at doing something is not always good enough - the creative world is so subjective not everyone will appreciate what you have to offer. 

If you hit a creative block, what is your top tip for getting through it? 
Allowing a respected colleague or friend who has similar ideas or priorities to give a constructive critical analysis of  the problem or a sticking point in a piece of work is a good way of getting through a creative block, but you need to  develop that thick professional skin to allow a critic to be non personal.  

And finally, for fun, if you were a shoe, what type of shoe would you be and
If I was a shoe I would definitely be a soft red leather 3in high tango shoe with extra cushioning!!
