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.

an afternoon with state of the heart

Yesterday I had the pleasure of working with my dear friend Melissa McFarland of State of the Heart, a new lifestyle blog launching this Spring. After designing the branding for State of the Heart, we decided to organize a styled shoot to take place over lunch with friends. Melissa went above and beyond, preparing grilled skirt steak with a Chimichurri sauce, a crispy potato skillet, green bean salad with mustard seeds and tarragon, as well as a rhubarb and rose tart. Sipping prosecco and breaking warm braided bread, the lunch was a complete success. The photographs taken by Amie Enns look beautiful. With only one month remaining before her sweet baby is due, I'm so excited to see how Melissa's new project unfolds. Check back from my full feature with State of the Heart.
