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.

A lovely summer cocktail recipe from our recent First Ladies Club in Victoria, BC. Thanks to Bash Specialty and Rock Paper Square for hosting such a great evening. 

The Molly Jane

1 oz Victoria Gin
1 oz Gifford's Grapefruit
1/2 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
1/2 oz lavender simple syrup

Shake all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice. Pour into glass. Garnish with lavender sprig and sage leaf.

Lavender Simple Syrup

Boil equal parts sugar and water (adjust the sugar to taste). When boiling, add 2 teaspoons lavender buds. Reduce for 30-40 minutes. Pour through fine strainer to remove lavender buds. Refrigerate to store in a sealed container for up to three weeks.
