creative / doodler of leaves / Italophile / cat lover / tea drinker
I am a professional graphic designer and enjoy creating art in my spare time. I live in the small market town of Eye in the heart of the Suffolk countryside.
With a passion for all things Italian, the family holidays nearly always ended up in a different part of Italy. I fell in love with the climate, culture, scenery, food, people and the relaxed lifestyle. And I love driving my red Alfa Romeo Giulietta.
I decided to buy a small piece of Italy and settled on the beautiful and unspoilt region of Puglia, home to the traditional trulli buildings.
I purchased Trullo Tranquillo in August 2016 with the intention of creating a peaceful retreat for couples. A place for guests to be close to nature, pursue creative activities or just escape to.

artist / keen photographer / lover of all things Italian
In 2016 I gained a first class honours degree in Fine Art. Although I have a graphic design background, I now work in sculpture and installation art – often on a large scale.
I have recently discovered the delights of Italy and I am particularly fond of the Puglia region. In these stunning surroundings we plan to run holiday retreats, eventually incorporating art workshop holidays.
