Julie Paterson

Painter and Printmaker

I am a painter, printmaker and designer of textiles. I own a small fabric company called Cloth that I set up more than 25 years ago, because it made sense at the time and still does now.

I live in NSW’s Blue Mountains on Dharug and Gundungurra land, where I work with a small team of people who love what they do, making textiles by hand, the old-fashioned way.

I collaborate with others for the joy of making something together that we couldn’t make alone.

During the heady, early days of the pandemic, I developed a collaborative ephemeral art project, designed to support people’s mental health through engaging with a once-a-week creative practice.

I take commissions and I exhibit. My favourite place to be is working in my studio. Or pottering about the garden.

I’ve written a book and a manifesto to live by.

I live a simple life. It feels good.
