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.

Summer on Vancouver Island

After returning home from a trip to Saskatchewan this past week, I was excited to enjoy a weekend at home with my dear friend Leah who returned with me.

I love showing visitors around the Island, especially during summer harvest. There is an abundance on wild berries, flowers, peaches, tomatoes and pretty much everything your heart desires.

We visited local markets, picked wild berries in Saanich and even spent an afternoon at a friends farm. Preparing simple, fresh meals, hiking Mount Work and walking along the ocean, our time together has been so lovely.
