Print luminary Linda Jackson has been a creative compass for Romance Was Born, infusing pieces of their clothing with an otherworldly sense of colour. AP & LS: “Linda, we have often talked about how much you travel; what is it about being on the road that you love so much?” LJ: “My first adventures on the road are memories of lounging in the back seat of the car. Dad driving and always leaving so early in the morning to another holiday spot somewhere at the coast or country Victoria. Watching the trees, clouds and sky sail past.
“I learnt to drive in Alice Springs only 20 years ago. Before that I was always the passenger in many an amazing fourwheel-drive journey over many a remote road around spectacular spots in Oz.
“I love being on the road. Packing the car, thinking about the roads to take. “A meditation in adventure and space. “I allow more time to enjoy the hours of driving, taking in the land and sky.
“Visions of new ideas float by. Paintings and colours appear. The landscape changes and is all-enveloping.”
