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.

When you're young the anticipation of growing one year older is so exciting, at least I can remember the years when I just couldn't wait to be older. Old enough to have a sleepover, to ride my bicycle around the block alone, old enough to drive, old enough to move to the city and get my very own apartment. What can I say, I was was always eager to earn my independence.

As I enter the last year of my twenties I can honestly say that I'm as excited as I was the year before I turned sixteen or nineteen or even twenty-five. This past year has been amazing; filled with travel, great friends and so many rich experiences. I dove into my work and really pushed myself and I'm starting to believe wholeheartedly that it's possible for me to be creative for a living. I feel like I'm really developing a unique style as a designer and I finally feel authentically confident in my work and ideas. I suppose all of these things come with age and experience.

As I spend today responding to well wishes from the amazing people in my life and celebrating with my family, I feel very fortunate.

Another year gone, a new year to look forward to.
