She lives in the Tasman region, which has many great galleries and private artists’ studios. Gardening and being outside in nature is one of her favourite ways to spend time. She has a deep love of plants and is keen to show guests some fascinating and beautiful local gardens. Also, she loves to cook – especially with the fresh produce grown at home – and with good food goes good wine of course! Another of her interests.
