This young artist is currently examining textures and tones found through the styling of hair within the Caribbean context. While drawing inspiration from the island, her work plays with the initial subject matter but rather focus on the textures of the image.

How many out there remember buying red frutee and cheese cutta from her? You always had to promise to “bring back de bottle !! JULIANNE GILL www.juliannegill.com I am inspired by nature and the beauty that surrounds us every day. The ocean is my element; I have always lived near the sea. After finishing my studies in Interior Design & Decoration, I set out on the typical Aussie 'Walkabout'; I ventured across the globe to South America, where I lived and travelled for several months. I currently work as an Interior Designer and I am passionate about art and painting. I am often drawn to paint in abstract form rather than a literal representation of a place or object. The conceptual use of colour and its ability to intermix on canvas can evoke a deep sensation within the viewer, resulting in personal interpretation rather than intellectual definition.

This time illustrated by legendary Marvel artist Geof Isherwood, the stories are told from a variety of female viewpoints. Aphotographer is asked by her best friends to tape them having sex—only to have the camera turned on her. As he lies dying, an old woman reflects on the passionate life she has led with her husband. And in the title story, a young woman haunts Montreal’s motels for revenge on a lover lost on the tracks of Barbados’ railways in the early 1900’s. GREAT MOVES continues an exploration of black and multiracial relationships begun in ATTRACTIVE FORCES and STRAY MOONBEAMS, which have both been reissued by NBM.

With its clean lines, colourful spreads and glossy finish, MACO Caribbean Living is a symbol of the simplicity and mystery of the Caribbean . Featuring writers and photographers from around the world, each has had experience and a background in the Caribbean , contributing reflections and opinions that are differing, intriguing, and most importantly honest. The word ‘maco' is a combination of African and French (called Patois, a Trinidadian dialect) and refers to a nosy person, or ‘to mind someone else's business'. Indeed, MACO not only delves into the physical beauty of the Caribbean but also reflects that which is intangible; its culture, its spirit and its philosophy. Within its pages, MACO conveys like no other the interwoven nature of the Caribbean and its eternal fascination for all who view it. MACO Caribbean Living – Mission Statement MACO Caribbean Living is dedicated to bringing the beauty and excitement of the Caribbean to the world with clarity, honesty and style.
