My name is Katie Sharpe – I'm the artist, designer and maker behind ‘Cliffwatcher’, an eco-friendly brand selling paper products, t-shirts and bags printed with my artworks. Having lived near the bush in Sydney all my life, I’ve always had a love of the natural environment. My Cliffwatcher artworks are inspired by nature and my products are made with eco-friendly, recycled materials.

I started Cliffwatcher a few years ago, soon after graduating from art school. Since then, I’ve taken my Cliffwatcher art to markets all over Sydney, where I really enjoyed sharing the eco-friendly ‘love’ with market-goers.

Keep up to date by following me on Facebook -

The name ‘Cliffwatcher’ comes from a narrative poem my Uncle, David Sharpe, published in 1974. The poem tells of his experiences living as a hermit in the remote Australian wilderness and features a beautiful gum tree he calls ‘Cliffwatcher’, which grows on the side of a cliff near his cave. I never met my Uncle, who died before I was born, but this wise and beautiful poem has allowed me to forge a connection with him regardless...

On the High Cliff’s edge next the waterfall,
an old silver gum spread its life;
I called it Cliffwatcher,
and we climbed long to seek its help.
As Phoenix sharpened his claws
by way of greeting,
I knelt beside the silky trunk
and listened for the wisdom
of Cliffwatcher’s stately growth…

- David Sharpe, In the Eye of a Hermit (1974)
