About the Artist      

Julie’s highly sought-after artwork combines a distinctive sense of the organic with a masterful understanding of geometry and proportion. 

“ClothBound is a book that's taken me twenty years to write. It showcases my creative process, tracing the development of ideas all the way from first images and notes made in my sketch books through to resolved collections. This book tells those stories, celebrates the imperfect and offers up a modest philosophy of sorts. It's the heart and soul of Cloth in 240ish pages, and I'm proud of it.” 

Clothbound — published in 2015 by Murdoch Books, an imprint of Allen & Unwin. Publisher Jane Morrow.

About the Artist

Julie Paterson

“I am a painter, printmaker and designer of textiles. I own a small fabric company called Cloth that I set up more than 20 years ago, because it made sense at the time and still does now.

I live mostly in the mountains and sometimes near the ocean on the edge of the city. I like working with found wood and metal. I like printing on hemp. I prefer cycling to work but sometimes I take the bus. My favourite colour is Old Lady Red. I love my dog. I’ve written a book and a manifesto to live by.

I live a simple life. It feels good.”
