My sister and her family arrive in Sydney this evening all the way from Bristol. So I’ve been making curtains for their Mountain stay in the cabins. Very important to feel cosy in your own room after a long haul flight. Excited to see them. Their first time ever visit! March 11th, 2018julie
Imaginary Albums opens tomorrow and runs until April 10. The project was thought up by my darling @cannylass67 and is hosted by the indomitable Kelly Heylen at @platformgalleryco in Katoomba. We are strong we are invincible. Happy International Women’s Day, people. March 8th, 2018julie
There are a million things to get done today but whilst my tea was brewing I noticed this old silver tea strainer on the draining board. It belonged to Mandas grandmother. She brought it over from Russia is how I think the story goes. Or China maybe. She lived in both places. All the same my 3.5 minutes is up. The tea is now ready to pour. March 7th, 2018julie
Imaginary Albums. The LP’s that don’t exist but should. This exhibition of 10 Blue Mountains writers and 10 artists collaborating on a great idea conceived and curated by my favourite @cannylass67 opens this Friday in Katoomba at @platformgalleryco at 5.30. And runs to 9 April. We photographed all the work yesterday and all I can say is I’m excited and proud to be part of it all. She’s even made a website.

The view from the cabin is my colour palette for the interior walls. Charcoal, warm grey, putty and a sharp olive. March 5th, 2018julie
So this is where you’ll find out just what I’m up to. You can follow my #patersononeaday project, every day of the year I make an ephemeral artwork out on a walk in the world. You’ll get to see what my students are making in my #lookdrawprint workshops and find out when they are on and whenever 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.
