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.

Book Stand

Today I was transported into the daily life of online bookshop creator and editor Claire Cottrell through the Paris Review's Culture Diary. A perfect break from a routine day of web design and print layouts, I happily welcomed the opportunity to read about her experience at the LA Book Fair and the daily tasks of her online book store, Book Stand.  Of course, I chased this read with a visit to her website

Book Stand is an art book lovers haven. Sorted into collections like 'Dreamlands' and 'Love my Love', I found myself browsing through the books of Sophie Calle, Anne Schwalbe and Brion Nuda Rosch. As someone with an ever-growing collection of art books, Book Stand will be marked and returned to often.
