My Bio
Nellie Windmill is the project of Katherine Herriman... (that’s me). Hi! I'm a painter. I create more opportunities for daydreamers to keep their heads in the clouds. But really, I just want to add to the beauty in the world. Since 2009, my nomadic studio dwells in a motorhome called "Nettle", somewhere in Europe.

Listening to the music of my adolescence, namely Nirvana, reminds me of when life felt dangerous. Friends steered, reckless, powerless and powerful all at once, out of control. Adults absent, emotionally and physically, peppered our lives with their own insecurities and maladjustments, normalising dysfunction. Drugs and sex offered an impossibly enticing anaesthetic and instead compounded all of the problems they were supposed to alleviate creating a spiral I can only now see, in hindsight. How the fuck did we survive it?

Last winter whilst we were house sitting in Wales I updated my bio on the "My Story" page with this: "We're still travelling but we're beginning to dream of home, and nesting, and the life that's waiting for us back in Australia. Instead of longing for quaint mediaeval European towns, my heart goes thump when I think of long dinners with friends, buying a house and making it a home, and regular trips to the library. We've reached the tipping point of our travels and are coming out the other end." Since then, we've fallen in love with the idea of building our own house and have seriously  entertained the possibility of building a cob or straw

Your gallery is filled with things I would like to try. Thank you for the inspiration.
That's so fantastic, Ivan. Also, sorry for the belated reply! I absconded from DA for a while but am back now :)
Hi Katherine =) I have recently added a free magazine as an extension of my online gallery. It was originally titled "Penance" but my 6th edition out now (January Issue #1) has seen some changes and it is now called "Fresh Palette". I have also created a second publication "Raw Canvas" (January Issue #1 also out now) which is restricted to 18+ displaying art which is a little on the edgier side of the spectrum...

I have featured your work along with you deviant link in the January issue! You can check it out via the link below and don't forget to spread the word!!!

You and I have very similar interests. I'm training to work in the social worker field and I am also very interested in art. I hope to have a career in art in some way along with helping others. PS. I love your work. Take care!
It's absolutely astonishing how many arty social workers I know! There's some sort of connection there. Good luck with the social work! x
