In conversation with
Lloyd Harris & David Collins
Tell us a little about yourself and the art you are interested in
My husband, David, and I are a retired nurse and lawyer, respectively. We are now in the process of moving full time from Sydney’s inner west to the Blue Mountains. Moving our Sydney collection to our home in Katoomba has been one of the early challenges in retirement, particularly in the middle of a pandemic!
Having been collecting for some 40 years, unsurprisingly, the collection is varied but more recently I have focused on artists with a strong message addressing the important issues of this century as well as the work/artists with a connection to the Blue Mountains. David (the dog lover in the relationship) also collects work with canine subjects.

Tell us about how you discover new art and how you came to discover them
Gallery hopping on a Saturday was a regular feature of our lives for many years but with work demands and because we came to spend most weekends in Katoomba, that became more difficult in recent years and so the internet has been a godsend.
