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.”
