We're taking time to talk with Maddy Hodgetts, a Ngiyampaa and Wiradjuri artist who is busy making monumental things happen in the fashion industry. Where do we even start?

Her design for Kinga Csilla - the Kali fabric pattern - speaks of Country, connection and waterways, and is expressed in the lushest, freshest blues and greens. What a delight. Tell us a bit about your own emerging label,...
On living as the Romans do // With artist Madeline Jovicic

Maddy Jovicic's paintings are about the joys of simple eating and drinking as the Romans do.
Think of pinks, sunshine yellows and warm deep primaries that speak of gelati, vino and antipasti crisscrossed with oil and lemon juice.
We're taking time to talk about rituals, art and treating yourself like a goddess.

We're taking time to chat with Sydney artist Britty Flynn about her emergent practice as a studio painter.
Her works stand out to us by the way they evoke wildlife, dreams and playfully surreal still life arrangements,
that might well place her with contemporaries such as Jess Locke or Jini Maxwell. We ask about work, play, and daily styling.
