The Babblery podcast released a full-length interview with book artist Felicia Rice, an internationally known letterpress artist who resides in Mendocino. Rice's new book, Heavy Lifting, is an artist's response to loss—she lost her home, her studio, and her life's work in the 2020 CZU Lightning Complex fire.
In the interview, Rice talks about her lifelong struggle with her own view of herself. She says that raising her sons gave her a term for it: "an outside watcher coming in."
“I was very self-deprecating as a young person, very self-effacing,” Rice reveals. “Even as I stepped into the community I was I was careful, humble. Now I’m not so humble anymore. I’m trying to show off some of what I can do and I feel that, yes, I have something to add to the conversation.”
