Willie Weston

Since 2015, Willie Weston has been working in partnership with First Nations artists through First Nations-owned art centres to develop fabrics, wallpapers and other interiors products for commercial and residential use. A profit-for-purpose business run by two non-Indigenous women from Naarm (Melbourne), Willie Weston’s ambition is to celebrate the diverse artistic output of First Nations artists and to support its integration into the built environment. Artists are paid for each metre of fabric or wallpaper produced as well as receiving a share of net profits at the end of each financial year. This scalable and ongoing fee structure provides artists with regular income streams outside their main art practice. By working in this way, Willie Weston aims to contribute to viable livelihoods in First Nations communities across Australia.
