I’m a fashion designer by trade, but have left the industry and a very busy city life behind to return to my first love, the arts. I now live an artful town and country life with my husband, daughter and three dogs. I'm an animal lover, I also love gardening (even if my back doesn't) and I love my old house. They are a wonderful source of inspiration for my work. A century house requires a lot of attention and is a work in progress, but it's a great hobby. My previous job as a fashion designer took me to the most glamorous cities around the world. It's great to travel for work, but I'm looking forward to traveling for pure enjoyment. My husband Brian is a writer, editor and book collector - you will see this by the tremendous amount of books we have. My daughter Astrid is a teen who loves to draw using the computer. She also is a voracious reader. A perfect example of the fruit falling near the tree.
