What a joy it was to be back in Sydney, Australia 15 years after my first visit to the land of Oz. Much was the way I remembered it (very warm/friendly locals, delicious food, inspiring fashion) and at the same time it was so new to me because the city has grown quite a bit. Although the visit was brief, I packed in a delicious amount of goodness. A major highlight was going to the Semi Permanent conference (and staying at the nearby Old Clare Hotel) which, in short, is days of creative inspiration thanks to highly accomplished creative professionals sharing their wisdom and their work with the masses. I’m very proud of my husband for being invited to speak at this thought provoking, informative, fun event. And it was such a treat meeting so many talented people including super prolific artist Gary Baseman who signed and drew an illustration in a book for us. Score! A close second, as far as highlights go, was Vivid Sydney, a 23-day festival of light, music and ideas. While I didn’t get to experience much of Vivid, I had a super time watching the famed Sydney opera house, and other notable Sydney buildings, awash with fun, creative projections once the sun set. I hope you enjoy a handful of photos that show what I was up to and what caught my eye.
