My name is NATALIE MILLER

Natalie lives with husband Darren and their three children, and shares Green Bridge Studios, Moss Vale with friend and fellow artist, sculptural weaver Harriet Goodall.
- I live … in Kangaloon in the Southern Highlands
- I love it here …. because it’s extraordinarily picturesque. It is a special place in the world that has green rolling hills, dairy farms, country lanes and in the summer the mists, which adds to the beauty
- My life in five words is …. creative, colourful, busy, fulfilling, crafty.
- Followers of my Instagram feed regularly see …. my textile art, travels, my colourful yarn shop, the environmental architectural home we are building and the hills of Kangaloon.
- The Southern Highlands has been my home for …. the past five years
- We moved here because …. we wanted to build an incredible environmental house with an incredible vista, and to escape the city.
- My three favourite three things about the Southern Highlands are … the beautiful surroundings, the creative people that I now call my friends, the strong community.
- My favourite things to do in the Southern Highlands are …. take longs runs along the many running tracks, hang out in my studio in Moss Vale, watch the sunsets over the Wingecarribee River, in winter to light a log fire every night.
- I always take friends who come to stay to …. Biota for tapas and Bistro Oficina, both in Bowral and both have a fabulous atmosphere.
- The thing I hear most people visiting the Southern Highlands say is …… they would love to relocate as it’s so beautiful yet so close to Sydney.
- My special place for time with family & friends is ….. at home by the fire, or a long lunch on the table in the field.
- You really shouldn’t leave the Southern Highlands without ….. visiting the many water holes that are in the Highlands, a visit to Belmore Falls and the many coffee shops in Bowral and Moss Vale. Oh and visit Green Bridge Studios, and the other great shops located in Moss Vale, which has recently become a wonderful creative hub.
