Copywriting for Artist Bio



Cybele Ironside creates both quietly lush landscapes and more temperamental abstract canvases that convey her private connection to the physical world. She’s a poetic explorer of her west coast surroundings and translates what she sees, and, more keenly, what she experiences into representational paintings that come tantalizingly close to near abstraction. Beautiful work. And her backstory of growing up on Bowen Island as an adventurous moptop kid was an inspiring insight into her work.

Born in Vancouver, Ironside was raised by creative parents committed to the sensibilities of 1970’s open learning theories. Freedom of thought mattered most of all. Her mother, Anne, was a leading education pioneer and the family’s Bowen Island property became Ashoka House, a seminal educational retreat for alternative teaching. For Ironside as a kid, island life allowed her independent spirit to follow her own curiousities. In the light, water, trees and ground, Ironside came to appreciate an animistic spirit that enlivens all of nature. The feeling that the world was alive with potential.”

Copywriting + Ghost Writing

What you say matters.
BCreative Consulting provides our clients a wide range of written and ghostwritten material to achieve their messaging goals. The key is to write with an audience in mind. Emotion, authenticity and storytelling all play a part in capturing the attention and loyalty of others.
For artists, personal brands and small businesses, the story of their creative individuality - the vital core of their identity - is a powerful opportunity to connect what they do with others. Your audience wants to be informed and inspired. Go at it with gusto.

Content Creation + Marketing

What you share matters.
BCreative Consulting works with our clients to shape the image and stories they share in this social media-fuelled marketing age. Digital storytelling is one of the most effective methods for growing audience engagement, developing your brand presence and driving sales. Compelling content earns you stature, inspires trust and stokes curiosity and loyalty. But you have to think about your audience as much as yourself. Still, even the most personal stories can have universal appeal. Be relatable and be inspiring.
