Nipped down to the Illawarra to check out a Ute today. There is great beauty in this heavy industrial landscape. I’m definately coming back with a bit more time and my sketch book in my back pack. August 14th, 2018julie
This morning i did something I’ve wanted to do for years. I drove to Kurnell and sketched all the industry on the shore line. Never been there before and and it s really interesting. I sat across from La Perouse and drew what I could see with crinkled up eyes from the sun and the wind. I watched the planes and the big ships come and go and thought about the significance of the place. August 11th, 2018julie
Dusk at Coogee headland. I was surprised to come across the remains of a bush fire here. Although i do dimly recall something from maybe the summer before last? Shows how little time I spend in my old neighborhood these days. I really do feel like a visitor. August 10th, 2018julie
Local Colour is a lovely exhibition curated by Liz Williamson, on at UNSW galleries in Paddington right now. These four artists Margaret Rarru, Judith Kentish, Julie Ryder and HollyStory’s work were my favourite pieces. Don’t think I’ve ever seen such a deep black woven basket like this before.

Now we’re talking! This place is great. Just round the corner from all that shiny cockle bay wharf nonsense we get to real barnacles on the bottles. Great work on the research @cannylass67 August 8th, 2018julie
So this page features my instagram posts. Here's where you'll see the things that inspire me and what I'm making - artworks, designs, products, collaborations and so on. You'll see what I'm making from my #ScrapCloth pieces, what's happening in my Blue Mountains studio and at #roughtrackcabins, our two ironstone cabins where you can come and stay. You’ll get to see what's going on with my #lookdrawprint workshops when they are on, and find out if I’m doing something special like a wee Cloth pop-up shop. I'd love to keep you in the loop about all of this. If you'd like that too, I reckon you should follow me on Instagram and Facebook.
