Ruby Davies lives on a property just outside of Dubbo in Central NSW. We’re in the middle of a drought and the land is parched. Red dust covers the studio where where Ruby paints at the back of her property. The pool lies empty, and the garden is struggling to survive.

Studio Visit with Madeline Young

Studio Visit with Genevieve Bessell-Browne

Genevieve is a collector. Beautiful, vintage, porcelain figurines cover every horizontal surface, and some of the walls. There are flowers and plants everywhere and then there’s the art. Paintings featuring the beloved collection of knick-knacks, vintage fabric and other objects cover the walls. I was in heaven!
