For International Women's Day, we're thrilled to launch a collection of independently designed prints for the #ChangeAGirlsLife campaign.
This year, to celebrate International Women's Day, we launched an exciting initiative for young artists to get involved in. Moreover, in collaboration with The Prince's Trust Charity, we invited young female artists to create a piece of artwork for the #ChangeAGirlsLife campaign. As such, with women supporting women being so important to us at Rockett St George, we were thrilled to pick six amazing artists to be a part of this collection. In this blog, we detail Sophie's glorious We Rise Art Print and what inspired her to create it. Finally, see below to find out more about this stunning piece of art and exactly why you need one!
26-year-old Sophie found that throughout her life, people told her that being creative is a hobby, not a profession. As such, when continually met by negative reactions to her dream, Sophie was made to feel that art was not a viable career option. For this reason, she believes that the traditional idea of work culture makes it challenging for women to try to build their careers. However, Sophie’s experience has taught her the importance of women supporting women. On top of this, she's found that there are women you meet in life who will support you no matter what. This year, Sophie is dedicating her time to becoming a full-time artist. After that, Sophie would love to eventually teach other women how they can do the same.
Sophie's Design Inspiration
Sophie’s painting is inspired by a memory of her and her friends travelling to the beach to see the sunrise from the calm ocean. As such, this yearly tradition provided a sense of togetherness whilst musing about life, goals, falling in love, and endless exciting possibilities. For this reason, Sophie’s artwork celebrates the power of finding these moments with the women you love. On top of this, the print depicts rising together with the sun and supporting each other. Sophie hopes that her design will inspire people to dream that dream, enjoy the little things, be creative whilst feeling the earth on your bare feet. And lastly, get excited and never let anyone tell you that you can’t.
Where Can I Purchase The We Rise Art Print?
You can find the We Rise Print within our collection of unique art available on Rockett St George and at our concession space in Liberty London. Even better, in support of the #ChangeAGirlsLife campaign, we are donating 25% from every sale of the winning designs, directly to The Prince’s Trust to support more young women and change their lives for the better.
Why Support The Prince's Trust x Rockett St George Campaign?
The Prince’s Trust helps young people all over the UK to build their confidence and skills by supporting them into jobs, education and training. On top of this, their research has found that more than half (57%) of young women said they have lost confidence in themselves as a result of the pandemic. As such, a quatre of young women (25%) feel like they are going to fail in life, compared to 19% of young men. In response to this, The Prince’s Trust Women Supporting Women initiative helps address the challenges young women face. Moreover, Rockett St George is incredibly proud to support the #ChangeAGirlsLife campaign. Even better, the funds raised will help to bring hope and opportunity to young women who have lost confidence in their future, whilst also raising profile and awareness of six talented young female artists.
