Christmas Post

It's that time of the year again!
Merry Christmas!

I have spent my first 8 years of my life in Nagano City of Japan, where the temperature would drop to as low as -15 Degrees Celsius during winter. So for me Christmas was all about making snow huts, waiting for Santa and enjoying mum's cooking and dad's Bush de Noel Christmas Cake!

Since immigrating to NZ, while missing the snow we have come to love the Summer Christmas here! We would spend the Christmas and New Years Camping and fishing,  still enjoying the Santa magic, mum's cooking and dad's Bush de Noel!

This year we will be having a quiet one. My man is still recovering from his head injury. Things has improved a lot though in the last five months! From his bed ridden vegetable stage he has steadily recovered and is now undergoing rehab programme back into his work. His medication is stopping him from having late nights or early mornings, and he has become really sensitive to sunlight (another side effect from the medication). Obviously no alcohol has been allowed this whole time either. So this year we have booked an small beach house in the country side for two nights with two friends  My man can enjoy the quiet beach while I make sure he is well covered up and alcohol free! I am happy as long as I have a pen and paper :D


  1. Glad to hear your man is recovering! Love your art as much as ever. And the lamb with reindeer ears is totally adorable!!! Wish you had prints available for sale in the US!

    1. Thank you Kathy! Your comment has made me so happy :D
      I have been receiving many emails asking about availability of prints. Right now I am looking into how I can go about this. I want to make my art available to people at affordable prices. Hopefully sometime during early next year I will make prints available. The past months have been busy and emotionally rather stressful. Hopefully my man's gradual recovery will mean that I can have more time to myself and look into making prints!!! xox
