I have a confession to make… I have a book collecting habit – so much so that my library shelf in my studio is bulging at the seams with books in every available space. Ive told my husband I think I will need another shelf very soon

I had the privilege of photographing the beautiful home of the Jeffery family in the April issue of  Your Home & Garden Magazine. Everywhere I looked there were beautiful things to photograph – especially a lovely black labrador, Benson who became my assistant for the day!

I’ve spent the past week trying to sort out life after our long stays in Hong Kong. Think Im almost up to speed. Among other things I am currently working on pieces for my first little solo illustration show coming up in May… eek! – hope to have some process to show you soon…

This is my great grandmother riding side saddle – sometimes I wish we still used horses to get around, so much more friendly than my car

A splendid evening

In moments of wellness we made a very quick trip to China – ‘Shunde’ to be precise – which is a industrial port area known for the manufactory of all sorts of furniture. If you would like to go and check it out before it closes on the 31st March, the gallery is open Wednesdays 10am – 4pm and Thursdays 10am-6pm. Hope to have more to say in the new year but in the meantime I wish you all a very relaxing and safe holiday break.

A Glimpse of Gore

We travelled a few times north of Gore to a township called Mandeville for lunch at a lovely restaurant called The Moth – which sits on the edge of an air field and has a museum and restoration workshop dedicated to tiger moth planes and old steam trains.
