Hello 

My desire for the creative life has led me to the streets of Paris, the boroughs of New York, the galleries of Berlin and always to the shores of the West Coast. I am inspired by living a simple life, rich in culture. I am drawn to cities where dogs sleep below cafe tables, where books and art grace the walls of homes and where the world slows down for a meal shared with friends.

I've made my home on beautiful Vancouver Island. My studio and home, a hundred-year-old character house, acts as the canvas for every photograph, recipe and dinner party. 

I invite you to read my blog, view my portfolio and please get in touch if you're interested in working together.

Pender Island

This past weekend my friends and I spent the weekend on Pender Island. Living on Vancouver Island for almost 4 years, it still excites me that I must travel by boat to leave home.  It’s crazy to think that when I first considered moving to the west coast I had no idea that the Gulf Islands even existed. And now, having visited many of them, some by sailboat, I can attest to their magic.
 
In celebration of my friend Jesse’s birthday, we were invited to stay in a cabin at The Timbers, a 50-acre property that sits on the water across from Poet’s Cove. We arrived in the dark, navigating past quiet cabins, curious as to how such a beautiful place could be ours for an entire weekend. When I find myself in these places, so wonderful, I think I must be dreaming.

On our first night the warmth of the wood stove turned our attention to the simplicities of smaller island life and I concerned myself with preparing a flavorful winter dinner and reading my book by the fire.

Our days where spent tripping around the Timbers, exploring trails, walking out to the end of the vast dock and visiting with the sheep. Having the place to ourselves had turned us into giddy children: playing with sparklers, climbing up to the top of the tree house and jumping on the trampoline.

As the weekend came to an end, we all agreed, the Timbers is a magical place that we were incredibly lucky to experience.
