I live with my British soulmate, my sweet Papillon girls, Lucy and Pixie and the spirit of my border collie, Loki. My creativity is a tribute to the eyes that blink in the heart of every smallest thing, the flowing dreams whose pulse tries to reach to us in our most meditative state.

The weather has been cold and rough and although it’s a comfortable 21 degrees in the house, a certain little princess needs extra cosiness. So, I found a new trick: a hot water bottle under a quilt, and here she is, totally blissful:
