The Places You’ll Go Postcard Series Murwillumbah 

You’ll look up and down streets. Look ’em over with care. About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.” With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, your too smart to go down any not so good street.” Dr Seuss

I have been squirrelling away at this little project- The Places You’ll Go Postcard Series, for a year or so…faffing about really as we do…sifting through so many photos to decide which ones will best suit the wood surface onto which they are printed. I finally settled on a few and here they are. These are of my lovely home town Murwillumbah. I love the timeless quality of a postcard, the hand written message it invites and the seventies sweetness. My dream is to take a few road trips over the years ahead and discover the quirky beauty in other towns and locations…forage about in back streets, in hidden nooks and crannies, in the hearts of locals who hold their own cherished stories of the places they call home.

You can find my very first series pictured here for purchase at the Twed Regional Art Gallery and at Murwillumbah’s favourite local gift shop The Bowerbird Emporium.
