My photo
My life-growing up in Southern Africa, studying in Vancouver, Canada and then pursuing a fashion and design career in Paris--where I worked at Ralph Lauren and studied at Parson's School of Art and Design along with my experience as Ambassadress representing an Embassy in Washington, D.C have contributed to the evolution of my personal style. I have taken inspiration from the many extraordinary places I have visited -- from the magnificence of the Chateau of Versailles, a zen styled house built on stilts at the prestigious Pankaur Laut Resort in Malaysia, the traditional plantation houses of the Southern United Sates, the charming blue and white fishing village of Comporta, Portugal or the Spanish Colonial Missions in the Amazon Region of Bolivia. I have discovered colors, countries, cultures and peoples from tribal villages in Mozambique to chateaus and villas in Europe that have been fascinating and inspirational to my taste.

Canada, British Columbia

Vancouver is one of the world’s most livable cities. It was recently ranked as the best city to live in north America. Its scenic location near the ocean, tucked up against the North Shore mountains, makes living in Vancouver an ideal base for year-round exploration. The city’s coastline offers amazing views and great beaches, while the mountains offer hiking trails and snow sports. Living in ‘Beautiful British Columbia‘, world-renowned for its natural beauty, is ideal if you have an appreciation for the outdoors.
