Coco’s Garden, remembering Paris – November 2017

Romantic and enigmatic, the Coco's Garden series was born from my garden of David Austen roses and my love of Paris. When I lived in London, catching the train under the sea (yes! how amazing) and arriving in Paris was an absolute delight. A part of me unwound and felt at home. I just loved [...]
