Who are you? My name is Graham Wilson. I am a Newcastle Artist, Designer, and stonecarver.
What do you do? I like to paint, draw, sculpt, design, and teach. In my “spare time” I design theatre sets and act.
What inspired you to get involved in Renew Newcastle? I had always admired the Renew program and I had long wished for a more public space to display and produce my work. I have worked from home for many years and now I feel as if it is time to come out of the shadows and show the good burgers of Newcastle what I like to do.
What are you doing in your new space? My space displays a range of work that I have produced as an artist and as a regular stall holder at Newcastle Art Bazaar. I am a trained stone mason and I like the general public to see more of the traditional methods I use to produce hand carved pieces. I also use the space as a place where I can carve small scale stone pieces.
Tell us about the space – what was its previous use? My shop is be a part of the Emporium. The Emporium is a collection of Renew shops using the ground floor window displays of the former David Jones Department Store in Newcastle Mall. It is a privilege to have such a prominent shop front display.
