I took to the Golden Plains Arts Trail a couple of weeks ago. Lots of artisans/arts people opened their studios and workshops from Linton and Smythesdale through to Teesdale and Meredith and around Dereel and Garibaldi. The generosity of the people who opened their work spaces for the day made it memorable.

I hadn't realised how cramped I was feeling until I sat down here and started to breathe in the space and light.
I live in Ballarat, an old goldfields town, in the central west of Victoria, but southerly in relation to the world. I love Chinese architecture, the post-goldfields towns and countryside of central Victoria, and I love the practice and the art of history. This year I'm beginning a research project on Ballarat in the 1870s.
