My heart has been hit very hard during this last week, our beautiful historic city of christchurch with it's wonderful people and friends has been hit by a devastating earthquake. I pray that you can rebuild your lives and never again have to endure this hardship. My dear friend Helen and family, i am so thankful you are all ok. we are all thinking of you .

the weather is gorgeous! what a fab summer we are having, i'm thinking of you all on the other side, i hope it's warming up for you at last.
these pieces have a new zealand theme. each lady is holding a fern, pohutukawa, kowhai or frangipani (not technically kiwi more pacific really!) they are for sale as art and will also appear on gift cards and block mounts through the image vault.

i just have to show you my new studio space at home, i am just so happy to finally have a place where i can create and decorate and fill with all my inspirational treasures. it's up high over looking the neighborhood, i really do feel like the princess in her castle!
I was thrilled to receive a commision from a lovely man who wanted to give his wife something special for her birthday,
he told me she loves to read, shoes and the ocean, she also likes the colour purple,

i have combined these elements to create this peacful piece.
he will pick it up tomorrow, i hope he likes it!
