we built this strawbale studio a few years ago as a working space for both paul and myself. he does all his music in here and prepares his lessons. and me… i just love playing around. with wool and silk and paint…

i don't have an inspiration board but i have this big shelf where i keep things that i treasure and that inspire me…

i love our studio and am really grateful to have this beautiful space where i can create and leave a mess and then go back into the house to cook dinner…

by the way…

Happy Thanksgiving!

to every one who is celebrating it today. i am a bit jealous – it's not celebrated here in australia but i think it's such a great thing to have a day when you give thanks…

  1. Oh my goodness, your studio is gorgeous. I can feel the relaxing, creative energy coming out of my computer screen in these images. How wonderful that you have the space to retreat to and create in! I wish that I could swing by and spend the afternoon creating with you and then step out for a cup of tea in your lovely tropical garden, I’m such a sucker for bamboo! Happy Thanksgiving to you, I am taking a little moment here before my day and cooking begins in full force!
