My name’s Leila Sanderson aka Skinny and I’m going to be curating the Greg Hatton aka Twiggy blog- is that the right word? curating? – I’ve never blogged before – so please bare with me! I’ve been working full time with Twiggy since October 09 and don’t tell him – but I totally love it!!! I intend to post photos of the diverse things we make here in Melbourne and at the Butter Factory in Newstead and also the beautiful landscaping work that Twiggy creates. A little about me: I’m from a small ex-mining town in the UK called Ilkeston or Ilsen to the locals – its the epitome of ‘Its Grim Up North’! Don’t tell my parents I said that – they still live there!! Its in Derbyshire and is very close to both Nottingham and Derby cities and although its ‘grim’ its near some very beautiful lush green English countryside. I moved to London aged 19 and lived and studied Fine Art there for 8 years. I was supposed to study textiles, but I changed my mind after I discovered there were no boys doing the course – whereas the sculpture department was loaded with em!! I moved to Melbourne in 1999 and I love this city more with every day I live here.
