I am a strong believer in the power of earl grey tea when dealing with life’s challenges, I love vintage markets, where I regularly overspend and then have to find ways of getting all my treasures in the house without my husband noticing, I also am a little obsessed by fabrics, paints and anything vaguely creative. I love wine (I didn’t move to Italy by chance). I have two amazing boys and gorgeous husband who put up with and support my creativity, especially with their socks.


I was lucky enough to have grown up in a little village in Cornwall, UK surrounded by fields, sheep, deserted windswept beaches. I went to university in Cardiff to study Psychology and I met my husband in 2001, who is Italian, when he offered me the last glass of sangria at a house party (love that guy). We live in Italy with our two little children: Thomas and Benjamin who are a constant source of joy, tiredness and inspiration. We serve up pasta and pesto one day and shepherds pie the next: I love contamination and interesting mixes. This is my little story, I can’t wait to hear yours!
