Milly Sleeping: Quick Interview with Gracia Haby of Gracia & Louise
Our final interview for the holiday period evolved into a 'true or false' quiz for Melbourne-based artists Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, AKA Gracia & Louise. Together and independently (but most often together, and most often with a four-legged friend or two), G + L are very prolific makers, doers, dreamers — delightful to follow on the gram. Kind thanks to Gracia for taking the time to write, and to both she and Louise — for always being willing partners to our projects and flights of fancy.
