Island Home

Australia is a place where the environment is ultimately wild, untamed, harsh and fascinating. It is my backyard – a world of beauty that I largely neglect when the alluring strength of wanderlust takes hold. Having ignored it for so long, I think it is now time for me to concentrate on my island home.  This collection is about standing on the land’s edge with no one else around, windblown with the sweet relief of a life and a place in this vast expanse.
