Julian Twigg

Probably the most wonderful artists’ studio must be that of Julian Twigg, situated at the end of a long private pier annexed to his ancestral holiday-house ‘Netley’ at Melbourne’s seaside village of Sorrento. Netley was the home of Australia’s first master builder Clements Langford, best known for such Melbourne architectural icons as St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Bryant and May factory and the Herald building. At the end of the pier is a boat shed that serves as studio to Julian on an irregular basis and from there he paints the shipping lane traffic as it makes it’s way in and out of Melbourne’s busy harbour.
