BEHIND THE SCENES
Award winning photographer, designer of pretty things both big and small, DIY junkie. She’s often found aimlessly wandering the paint chip aisle, or inappropriately stroking beautiful stationery. During some of her more lucid moments, she enjoys sharing a cuppa at the local with friends, family picnics on the beach, and taking her 2 little boys for a cruise in “Lola” – the resident 61 VW Beetle.
Lover of the simple pleasures which make life beautiful.
