"....Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,

I have loved all things creative and been artistic since childhood. In the last year I have been freshly inspired as I created funky and unique art pieces for my wedding and then for my husband and my little African love nest.

I hope you enjoy my shop and the glimpse of my home across the sea. Thank you for visiting!
