En­twined in val­ley life

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS - Belinda Cipri­ano

ARTIST Jude Tay­lor is one of four Swan Val­ley lo­cals to lend their voices as part of the Meet the Maker am­bas­sador roles for food and wine fes­ti­val En­twined in the Val­ley next month.

Tay­lor, whose fam­ily runs the iconic Tay­lor’s Art and Cof­fee House and has called the val­ley home for al­most 40 years, ex­hibit­ing her vi­brant pieces in the cafe’s art house, said she was hon­oured to be one of this year’s am­bas­sadors.

“Peo­ple love com­ing here; there’s a great sense of fol­low­ing,” she said.

“We work as a fam­ily which in­volves deal­ing with each oth­ers’ per­son­al­i­ties. We are all quite in­di­vid­ual.

“The big thing about the val­ley is we all use our land, our home, to cre­ate won­der­ful things for the peo­ple of Perth.

“We worked hard to save the val­ley for the peo­ple of Perth and we do use the space we have here to cre­ate some­thing spe­cial for Perth.”

In­spired by WA wild­flow­ers and land­scape, Tay­lor’s pieces in­clude fab­ric, steel gates and lamps and other medi­ums.

“The WA land­scape and wild­flow­ers in­spire me be­cause of their won­der­ful space and light,” she said.

“I be­lieve that our wild­flow­ers are a great her­itage and I wish for more peo­ple to cel­e­brate them.

“Meet the Maker is a great theme for the En­twined fes­ti­val, be­cause that’s of­ten what you’re do­ing when­ever you go to the val­ley.

“The peo­ple serv­ing you are very of­ten the peo­ple who’ve crafted and cre­ated what you’re buy­ing.”

Tay­lor joins chef Michael Hart­nell, wine­maker James Tal­i­jan­cich and grape grower and pro­ducer Mar­lene Katich as am­bas­sadors for En­twined, which will see more than 60 in­di­vid­ual events take place through­out the Val­ley from Oc­to­ber 12-15.
