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.

Deep Cove Solitude

Deep Cove Solitude

For the past week I've been fortunate to stay at my dear friend Charlotte's family home in Deep Cove here on Vancouver Island. Unable to work from our home during our renovation, the refuge of a quiet place to work and stay has been a blessing. And for the first time in several years, days spent completely alone. It's been interesting to re-learn how to just be by myself and a challenge that I think everyone should welcome from time to time.

Surrounded by beautiful gardens 'The Tree House' as it's been suitably named is the quintessential Pacific Northwest dwelling. Built around the great-grandfather of cedars, as I sit here writing in the cozy dining room, he stands beside me, his canopy protecting the roof, looking out over the ocean. Situated on the shoreline, the calm waters can been seen from the kitchen window, framed by lush ivy. Each room holds the history of Charlotte's family, who have inhabited The Tree House for the past thirty years.

Tomorrow I will return home, carrying with me a greater appreciation for solitude.
